DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — Bam Bowman scored 18 points and grabbed seven rebounds, Isaiah Coleman-Lands hit a game-winning 3-pointer at the buzzer, and Miami (Ohio) beat Wright State 65-62 on Wednesday night.
Coleman-Lands sank a contested 3 from the wing in between two defenders and was carried around the court by his jubilant teammates.

Trailing 30-21 at halftime after shooting 28 percent, the Raiders closed to 41-40 after a 13-3 run capped by Malachi Smith’s layup, then led 44-43 on Alan Vest’s free throw. It was back-and-forth with neither team leading by more than four points until Wright State’s Billy Wampler hit a 3 to tie it a 62 with six seconds left.
Wampler and Skyelar Potter scored 17 apiece for the Raiders (4-5), who finished shooting 42 percent.
