MOON TOWNSHIP, Pa. (AP) Elijah Minnie scored 17 points, and Conrad Stephens made all six of his shots and had 13 points as Robert Morris beat Fairleigh Dickinson 64-58 Saturday.

With the scored tied at 9 with 12:04 before the half, Earl Potts Jr.'s back-to-back jumpers started a 17-4 run to give the Knights a 26-13 lead with 6:13 to play.

But Robert Morris (4-15, 2-4 Northeast Conference) bounced back with a 13-2 run to close the half and trailed just 29-26 at the break.

Kavon Stewart's layup and an Isaiah Still's free throw gave Robert Morris the lead, 49-48, for good during a five-minute stretch in which the Knights didn't score.

Minnie, Stephens, Stewart and Still scored the Colonials' final 18 points. Fairleigh Dickinson only hit three field goals in the final 10 minutes.

Stephan Jiggetts scored 15 points and Mike Holloway added 13 to lead Fairleigh Dickinson (8-9, 4-2).
