Simmons delivers game-winning play as Bryant edges Columbia
Simmons stole a pass in his own backcourt, dribbled up court, went behind his back to avoid a defender, then dunked as he was fouled. He missed his free throw and Columbia missed a 3-point try, giving Bryant the narrow victory.
Adam Grant had 20 points and Simmons finished with 12 for Bryant (6-4), which has won four in a row at home. Elisias had eight points, 11 rebounds and six blocks for the Bulldogs.
Columbia plays at Duquesne on Monday. Bryant is at Fordham on Tuesday.
