SMITHFIELD, R.I. (AP) Damian Chong Qui scored 21 points and Malik Jefferson scored 10 with 15 rebounds and Mount St. Mary's stunned Bryant 73-68 on Tuesday night in the Northeast Conference tournament championship game and clinched an automatic berth to the NCAA Tournament.
It's Mount St. Mary's (12-10) sixth trip to the NCAA Tournament. Bryant (15-6), which entered Tuesday's game undefeated at home this season, has yet to make an appearance in the big dance.
The Mount was NEC's No. 4 seed and Bryant was second seeded.
