AMHERST, Mass. -- Luwane Pipkins scored 27 points and made all six of his free throws in the final 35 seconds and Massachusetts completed a comeback win and beat Saint Joseph's 72-69 on Sunday.
Shevar Newkirk -- who scored six of the Hawks' last 10 points -- missed a 3-pointer and a chance to tie with two seconds left. Newkirk and James Demery led Saint Joseph's with 22 points apiece.
The Hawks closed the first half with a 14-7 run for a 37-25 lead at halftime. Newkirk made three layups and a pair of free throws in the last six minutes. Demery's dunk 1 minute in extended the lead to 16.
Later, down 12, UMass (10-8, 3-2 Atlantic 10) closed to 54-49 with a 13-6 run when Pipkins made a 3 and a layup, Carl Pierre had a 3 and C.J. Anderson had a 3-point play.
Rayshawn Miller tied it at 59 with a 3 with 5:34 left. That was part of a four-minute scoring drought for St. Joseph's (7-9, 2-3) in which UMass posted a 10-0 run and led 64-59.
Newkirk and Nick Robinson sandwiched a layup each between one from Newkirk, and Demery added a pair of free throws to reduce the Hawks' deficit to 66-65 before Pipkins sealed it from the line.
Pierre scored 17 points with five 3-pointers and Anderson had 12.
FAIRFAX, Va. -- Otis Livingston II drilled a 25-foot buzzer-beater that hit nothing but net and lifted George Mason past Saint Joseph's 81-79 on Wednesday night, foiling a late comeback by the Hawks.
George Mason (8-9, 2-2 Atlantic 10) broke away from the early back-and-forth scrapping with a 14-4 run that opened a 10-point lead and the Patriots led until there were five seconds left in the game.
Chris Clover capped a dogged comeback by Saint Joseph's (7-8, 2-2) with a drive at five seconds remaining that gave the Hawks a 79-78 lead -- their first since it was 14-12.
After a timeout, Justin Kier dribbled past midcourt and flipped the ball to Livingston in the wing, who launched the deep 3-pointer.
Ian Boyd added 15 points for George Mason, Jaire Grayer 13, and Kier 12 with 10 rebounds, his first double-double, along with seven assists as the Patriots bounced back from an 86-59 pounding from Davidson on Sunday.
