WASHINGTON (AP) - John Schoof scored 16 points to help American to a 59-50 victory over Colgate in a Patriot League quarterfinal Wednesday night.

Tony Wroblicky added 14 points and 10 rebounds, and contributed a pair of late dunks to ensure the second-seeded Eagles (18-12) will host third-seeded Holy Cross in a semifinal Saturday.

Darius Gardner added 12 points for American, who won at seventh seed Colgate on Jan. 11 before losing at home to the Raiders (13-18) four weeks later.

Murphy Burnatkowski scored 15 points for Colgate, which saw its win streak snapped at four in a season-ending defeat.

Austin Tillotson and Damon Sherman-Newsome each added 10 points as the Raiders failed to come back after American assembled an 18-0 first-half run to lead by as many as 17.

Colgate shot just 50 percent (9 of 18) while tying season-lows for points in a game and in a first half.
