Nisre Zouzoua's 3-pointer flew into the air and through the hoop for Bryant against Robert Morris. Then, seconds later, his teammate, Sabastian Townes, flew to the Sewall Center floor, sending the officials to the replay table to try to assess what had caused the damage that left the 6-foot-5, 240-pound freshman withering in pain under the basket.

The final verdict handed Kavon Stewart a flagrant foul and sent the Northeast Conference's leading scorer, Zouzoua, to the free throw line in place of the injured Townes.

The result was essentially a seven-point swing that kicked off a game-changing 14-2 run for the Bulldogs that erased an 11-point lead and turned into a 59-56 defeat for the Colonials Saturday.
