Recap: Niagara vs. Rider

Lewiston, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Zedric Sadler and Anthony Myles each knocked down 20 points to lead the Rider Broncs over the Niagara Purple Eagles, 90-78, in Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference play at the Gallagher Center.

Jimmie Taylor contributed 15 points for the Broncs (8-7, 4-2 MAAC), who have won three of their last five games. Daniel Stewart added 14 points for the visitors.

Antoine Mason notched a game-high 26 points to lead the charge for the Purple Eagles (4-13, 1-5), who have lost four straight contests. Tahjere McCall scored 23 points in the defeat.

The Broncs started strong, shooting 60.9 percent from the field in the opening half, including 6-of-9 from 3-point range. The Purple Eagles made 43.3 percent from the floor and 11-of-12 at the line, but trailed 44-41 at halftime.

In the second half, the Eagles struggled to find their offense, shooting 37.5 percent from the floor, including a mere 1-of-12 from the perimeter, and they could only sink 6-of-14 at the line. At the other end, a 50 percent field goal percentage was plenty enough for the Broncs to pull away for the decisive win.
