Shaw Loses Overtime Heartbreaker to #22 Tampa, 82-81

Posted December 13, 2012

— Junius Chaney’s last-second layup in overtime rimmed out as Shaw lost a heartbreaker in overtime to # 22 Tampa 82-81 on Thursday night at the Bob Martinez Athletics Center.

Chaney, who had been attacking the basket and drawing fouls all night long, got another good look at the basket in the final seconds of the overtime period. The layup, unfortunately, fell short and no fouls were called as the Spartans barely remained undefeated on the season.

Four Bears scored in double figures with Karron Johnson leading the way with 16 points and eight rebounds off the bench. In his last two games, Johnson has missed just two shots. He was 5-of-7 from the floor against Tampa after going 11-for-11 in last week’s win over previously unbeaten Barton.

Curtis Hines finished with 15 points on a 6-of-11 performance from the floor, including 3-of-6 from three-point range. Chaney added 14 points and eight rebounds and shot 8-of-11 from the free throw line, which proved to be crucial in the latter stages of the game. Latrail McCoy finished one rebound shy of a triple-double, finishing the game with 12 points, 14 assists and nine rebounds.

The Bears, who fall to 4-3 on the season, held a 15-point lead (56-41) with 16:36 remaining in the second half. Tampa, who improves to 7-0, closed the game on a 33-18 run to force overtime. In the overtime period, the Spartans outscored Shaw 8-7 to take the win.

The Bears jumped out to an early 19-8 lead with 11:14 left to go in the first half. Despite several attempts by Tampa to cut into the lead, Shaw maintained an 11-point cushion with 7:05 to go in the first half when Derrick Hunter’s jumper gave the Bears a 27-16 cushion. The Bears were outscored 22-17 for the remainder of the first half as they led 44-38 at halftime.

Back-to-back three-pointers by McCoy and Hines, respectively, helped Shaw open the second half on a 10-1 run in the first three minutes. A layup by Mohammed Abdur-Rahim and a jumper from Taurus Dortch helped the Bears take a 54-39 lead.

After two made free throws by Tampa’s Jon Riles, Abdur-Rahim scored on another layup to put the Bears back up by 15 at 56-41 with 16:36 remaining.

The Spartans responded to Shaw’s early second half run with a spurt of their own, answering with a 13-3 run as they cut their deficit to five at 54-49 with 10:44 left.

Over the next eight minutes, Shaw seemed to have an answer for each of Tampa's attempts to cut into the lead. After allowing Tampa to cut it to five, Shaw responded with a layup from Chaney with 10:13 to go, which increased the Bears lead to seven.

After a layup by Tampa’s Vincent Cornu to get the Spartans back within five, Chaney helped the Bears increase their lead back to eight after getting fouled on a layup. He sank the free throw, giving the Bears a 64-56 cushion with seven minutes to go.

Tampa’s Da’Markco Foster got it back to within five with a three-pointer. That bucket was answered when Johnson, who was the recipient of a McCoy pass inside the paint, scored on a layup to keep the Bears ahead by seven at 66-59 with 5:54 left.

Over the next 3:12, the Spartans answered with an 11-4 run to eventually tie the contest for the first time. After Foster’s three-pointer from the right corner, the Spartans tied the game at 70 with 2:42 left to play.

Forty-one seconds later, the Spartans took their first lead of the contest when Foster sank two free throws to put them up 72-71.

Johnson gave Shaw a late lead in regulation when he stole the ball away from Tampa’s Anthony Griffis and drove the length of the floor for the dunk. Johnson’s bucket gave Shaw a 74-72 cushion with 52 ticks remaining in regulation.

Nineteen seconds later, Tampa’s Stefon Barfield tied the contest at 74 after attacking the basket and scoring on a layup. With nine seconds left, Chaney’s game-winning layup attempt bounced off the rim to send the game into overtime.

After a back-and-forth overtime period, Shaw held a late 81-79 advantage thanks to two critical free throws from Chaney with 1:12 left.

Twenty-four seconds later, Tampa’s Terrell Pritchett buried what would be the game-winning three-pointer to give the Spartans the lead at 82-81 with 48 seconds remaining.

Two missed free throws by Tampa late gave Shaw one last opportunity to attempt to win the game. Unfortunately, Chaney’s layup rolled out as time expired as Tampa celebrated the victory.

Foster led all scorers with 26 points on 4-of-7 from long range. Cornu finished with a double-double, scoring 13 points and pulling down 10 boards for the Spartans. Anthony Griffis added 12 points and six rebounds in the win. Pritchett added 10 points, including the biggest three-pointer of the night that put the Spartans ahead for good.

The Bears, who fall to 1-2 in overtime games this season, will remain in Florida for the remainder of the week as they travel to St. Petersburg to battle Eckerd College at 4:00 p.m. on Saturday afternoon.
