PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — E.J. Anosike made four free throws in the final 18 seconds to help Sacred Heart edge Army 79-78 on Friday night in the Brown Bears Tip-Off Classic.
Aaron Clarke and Sean Hoehn scored 24 points apiece to lead Sacred Heart (2-1). Zach Radz added 12 points and Anosike finished with 11.
Anosike’s two free throws stretched the Pioneers’ lead to 77-73. Jordan Fox answered with a 3-pointer to pull Army to 77-76, but Anosike sank two more from the line with 11 seconds to play.
