(Thursday, December 5)

Final Score: Virginia Commonwealth 71, Eastern Kentucky 68 (OT)

Richmond, VA (SportsNetwork.com) - Treveon Graham tallied 15 points and nine rebounds as the Virginia Commonwealth Rams outlasted the Eastern Kentucky Colonels in overtime, 71-68, at Verizon Wireless Arena.

Jequan Lewis added 13 points for VCU (7-2), while Rob Brandenberg and Melvin Johnson netted 12 points apiece. Juvonte Reddic scored just seven points but he hauled in 11 rebounds for the hosts.

For EKU (6-3), Corey Walden paced all scorers with 19 points while chipping in eight rebounds, three assists and three steals as well. Glenn Cosey put up 17 points and seven boards, while Marcus Lewis pitched in 15 points.

EKU shot a blistering 56 percent from the field in the first half, which was slightly better than VCU's 52 percent, but the Rams drained nine 3-pointers in the opening stanza and carried a 38-36 lead into the break.

The tightly-contested bout remained a one-possession contest for the majority of the second half. Trailing by a bucket with under three minutes to play, the Colonels took a 66-64 lead with 2:13 remaining following a pair of free throws by Cosey and a dunk by Lewis. The Rams tied the game with 1:04 left on a Johnson jumper, and after empty possessions by each team down the stretch, the game went to overtime.

VCU took an early lead in the extra session on a Brandenberg 3-pointer and held on to the advantage the rest of the way. EKU was just 1-of-5 from the floor in the overtime period.

VCU's bench outscored EKU's, 29-9.
