PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) Joshua Howard scored 18 points and Tavon Blackmon made a layup with 3.8 seconds left to lift Brown to a 91-90 win over Bryant on Monday night.
Blackmon had nine points and eight assists while committing just one turnover. His winner came just moments after Nisre Zouzoua buried a 3 to give Bryant a 90-89 lead with 12 seconds left. On Bryant's final possession, Ikenna Ndugba lofted the ball high in the air from near midcourt as time expired, apparently unaware of the Bulldogs' deficit.
Steven Speith made back-to-back layups to give Brown (3-4) an 89-83 lead with 2:47 to play. Ndugba and Marcell Pettway made layups to bring Bryant (2-5) within two with 1:02 left.
Speith scored 16 and had nine assists, JR Hobbie had 15 points and Travis Fuller scored 11 for the Bears.
Brown, which had a 43-39 lead at halftime, led 50-41 early in the second half on Corey Daughterty's 3.
Zouzoua scored a career-high 31 points, had six rebounds and five assists for Bryant. Adam Grant added 20 points, and Bosko Kostur had 16 points and seven rebounds.
