Junior Kendall Anthony’s 28 points, including the game-winning jumper with five seconds remaining as the Richmond men’s basketball team defeated St. Bonaventure 64-62 Wednesday night at the Robins Center.

After a basket in the paint by Terry Allen (14 points) tied the game at 62 with 1:32 remaining, the Spiders got a defensive stop with Alonzo Nelson-Ododa contesting a shot and coming up with his 10th rebound of the game.

He outletted the ball to Anthony, who bolted down court and stopped on a dime just inside the three-point line, knocking down the game-winning jumper.

"I'm really proud of our effort," Richmond head coach Chris Mooney said. "I think that's as big of a regular season win that we've had since I've been here. Under obviously difficult circumstances, I thought our guys were great when we were up in the second half and I thought we were great when we were down in the first half."

The Spiders (15-8, 5-3 Atlantic 10) found out earlier in the day that leading scorer Cedrick Lindsay's season had come to an end due to injury, and trailed by 14 in the first half. But Richmond held St. Bonaventure (13-8, 3-5 A10) to 19.2 percent shooting 5-of-26 after intermission and pulled out the victory.

"We stuck to what trying to do and our defense improved so much in the second half," Mooney said. "I'm really proud of our effort and really proud of the guys, that we were able to get the win"

Anthony made 9-of-15 field goals and 2-of-5 three-pointers as he scored at least 28 points for the second-straight game. He has made 19-of-36 (.572) in the last two contests and is leading the Atlantic 10 in scoring in conference play at 19.5 points per game.

Allen made 4-of-7 field goals and 2-of-3 three-pointers for his 14 points, which was the fourth time in the last seven games he scored in double-figures.
