SAINT BONAVENTURE, N.Y. (AP) - Marcus Posely scored 22 points and scored what turned out to be the game-winning 3-point play with 13 seconds left in St. Bonaventure’s 85-83 win over UMass on Saturday.

The score was tied at 81 after a Jaylen Adams layup for St. Bonaventure with 1:21 left. Jabarie Hinds regained an 83-81 lead for the Minutemen after a layup of his own with 29 seconds remaining. But Posely answered for the Bonnies, scoring a layup while drawing a foul on Zach Coleman, then stepping to the line to hit the game-winner. Dion Wright added a final foul shot for St. Bonaventure (20-7, 12-4 Atlantic 10).

Wright finished with 21 points and Idris Taqqee added 19 for the Bonnies.

Trey Davis hit 5 3s and led UMass (12-16, 5-11) with 26 points. Hinds added 25.

The Minutemen held a 45-35 halftime lead, but St. Bonaventure opened the second on a 13-3 run to tie it.
