HAMDEN, Conn. -- Ike Azotam hit a go-ahead free throw with 1:18 left and Quinnipiac beat Robert Morris 63-61 Thursday night in Northeast Conference play.
The first of Azotam's two free throws put the Bobcats ahead amid a 6-0 run that created a 62-58 lead.
Quinnipiac (11-13, 7-5) trailed 51-46 with 7:49 to play, but pieced together a 10-2 run over roughly the next 3 minutes and took a 56-53 lead on Izotam's layup.
The Bobcats then launched their 6-0 run and held the Colonials scoreless until Coron Williams' 3-pointer with a second left.
The win was Quinnipiac's third straight. Evan Conti led the Bobcats with 18 points, while Izotam had 10, all in the second half.
Johnson paced Robert Morris (17-9, 9-4) with 16 points.
It's about time for someone other than Duke and Kentucky to grab the top class. Could it be Tom Izzo and Michigan State in 2017?
There's nowhere to go but up for the Eagles, who were winless in the ACC last season but return a slew of young players who gained valuable experience.
