PITTSBURGH (AP) - Ovie Soko scored 27 points and Derrick Colter’s 3-pointer at the buzzer lifted Duquesne over St. Bonaventure 83-81 Saturday night.

St. Bonaventure (12-8, 2-4 Atlantic 10) led 81-80 after Charlon Kloof sank two free throws. Colter rebounded a missed free throw with 4 seconds to play and drained the game-winner at the other end.

Micah Mason scored 15, Colter 14, and Dominique McKoy 13 with nine rebounds.

Marquise Simmons broke a 23-23 tie with a layup to put St. Bonaventure ahead and the Bonnies led 44-38 at halftime.

Colter’s 3 pointer put Duquesne up 55-53 at 15:31 in the second half, and the lead traded hands four times until Matthew Wright hit a 3-pointer with 47 seconds left, giving the Bonnies a 79-78 edge. Soko hit a pair of free throws to make it 80-79 with 21 seconds left, then he fouled Kloof.

Kloof finished with 23 and Wright 22.
