St. Bonaventure, NY (Sports Network) - Eric Mosley dropped a career-high 39 points on 12-of-18 from the field to lead the St. Bonaventure Bonnies to a 99-94 decision over the Massachusetts Minutemen in an Atlantic 10 showdown at the Reilly Center.

Chris Johnson also had a career night with 22 points as St. Bonaventure (12-13, 5-7 A-10) snapped a two-game losing skid. Demitrius Conger added his third double-double of the season with 16 points and 13 boards.

St. Bonaventure attacked the rim in the second half and shot a spectacular 27- of-28 from the free throw line. The Bonnies held a slight lead for most of the half until Vinson scored seven straight points to tie the score at 85-85 with 2:14 remaining. Williams gave the Minutemen the lead with an old fashioned three-point play moments later, but it was all St. Bonaventure from that play on. Youssou Ndoye gave it the lead back with a layup on the next possession, and Conger and Johnson combined to shoot 8-of-8 from the foul line to seal the deal.

The Bonnies enjoyed an incredible night from the foul line, missing just one of their 33 attempts from the stripe (.970).
