NEW YORK (AP) — Michael Carey had 10 points, a career-high 15 rebounds and four assists Thursday night to help Wagner beat Bryant 65-56.

Corey Henson scored 11 and Japhet Kadji added 10 points for Wagner (9-5, 2-1 Northeast Conference).

The Seahawks scored the first eight points and led until a 7-0 run, punctuated by a dunk by Dan Garvin, put Bryant up 47-43 with 6:40 left.

But Wagner responded by scoring 22 of the final 28 points, including 9 of 11 free throws, to seal it.

The teams both failed to shoot even 35 percent from the field, but Wagner outrebounded Bryant 45-36, including 17-10 on the offensive glass and the Bulldogs made just 14 of 24 (58.3 percent) free throws. The Seahawks made 15 of 20 from the foul line.

Gavin led Bryant (5-11, 2-1) with 14 points. Curtis Oakley — the nephew of former NBA-star Charles Oakley — scored 12.
