Two late treys from Anderson lift Colonials to thrilling road-win

Karvel Anderson hit a 3 from the right wing with 4.5 seconds to play and Robert Morris claimed a 61-58 win over Campbell Tuesday night at Gore Arena.
 
After Campbell's Marvelle Harris tied the game on a stick-back with 27.4 seconds left, Velton Jones drove to the basket; then kicked the ball out to Anderson, who drained his 4th triple of the game.
 
Trey Freeman's attempt from the top of the key at the buzzer rimmed out to give the Colonials (5-4) their second-straight victory.
 
Lucky Jones led Robert Morris (5-4) with 15 points, while Anderson added 13 on 4-of-7 shooting from 3-point range. Mike McFadden chipped in 10, plus 7 rebounds for the Colonials, who overcame 35 percent shooting from the field (17-48) by making six more free throws (21-26) than the Camels attempted (10-15).
 
The Camels shot 52 percent from the floor, 61.5 percent (16-26) in the second half, but committed 20 turnovers, which the Colonials converted into 22 points.
 
Harris led all scorers with a career-high 21 points on 9-of-11 from the floor and 3-of-4 from the stripe, while grabbing 10 rebounds for his third career double-double. 


The Camels finished with a 34-24 edge on the glass and outscored the Colonials 36-16 in the paint. 


RMU led 30-25 before Campbell reeled off 9-straight points and led 34-30 on Harris' follow shot with 13:29 to go. After Velton Jones' driving bucket tied the score at 3 with 11:32 to play, neither team led by more than 3 the rest of the way. For the night, the score was tied 14 times and the lead changed on 13 occasions.
 
The Colonials return to action Saturday at Hampton.
