STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Kenneth Ortiz scored 21 points and Latif Rivers scored 10 of his 14 points during a second-half run as Wagner won its fifth straight game with a 71-66 victory over Mount St. Mary's Saturday.
The victory kept Wagner (15-11, 9-4) tied for second with Bryant on a day when Robert Morris clinched the Northeast Conference title at 13-1.
With the game tied, Rivers started an 18-5 run with a dunk and assisted on its finish with a full-court pass to Orlando Parker for another dunk. That left Wagner up 58-45 with 7:34 left.
The Mountaineers (11-5, 7-6) made four consecutive 3-pointers to get within three with 1:40 left before Ortiz drove for a basket for a five-point cushion. From there, the Seahawks made five free throws in the final minute to avenge a January defeat at Mount St. Mary's.
Rashad Whack led the Mountaineers with 15 points and 10 rebounds.
