Shaw Overcomes 15-Point Second Half Deficit, Downs Southeastern Oklahoma 83-79 in Overtime

Posted November 24, 2012

— Shaw overcame a 15-point second half deficit to force overtime, then built an 83-79 win over Southeastern Oklahoma State in the first round of the Glenn Young Invitational at the Sportscenter on the campus of Kentucky Wesleyan Friday night.

The loss was the first of the season for SOSU who fall to 4-1. Shaw, after an opening game loss, has won three straight and sits at 3-1.

Latrail McCoy had 30 points on the evening, but none were more critical than the three free throws he hit with 19 seconds left in regulation that tied the score at 68 and forced overtime. Karron Johnson, who picked up a fourth foul with six minutes remaining in regulation, finished out the game without another foul and tallied 22 points and pulled in nine rebounds.

Shaw struggled with turnovers in the first half. The Bears committed five in the first eight minutes of the game, and another three during a nine-point SOSU scoring run that gave the Savage Storm a double-digit lead with just over five minutes left in the first half.

With 4:17 left in the first half, Derrick Hunter hit a layup that put an end to SOSU's nine-point run and trimmed Southeastern's lead to 31-19. For the rest of the half, the two teams essentially exchanged buckets with the Savage Storm taking a 35-25 lead into the locker room.

Southeastern extended their lead to 15 points with 12:12 left in the second half when Mateus Oliveira got a slam dunk to give SOSU a 55-40 lead.

McCoy answered with a three pointer which started a ten-point run that cut the Savage Storm lead to five. After a Travis Timmons layup stopped the Shaw scoring run, Johnson threw down a dunk to start an 8-1 Shaw scoring spurt that tied the game at 58 with 5:18 left in regulation.

With 4:13 left in the second, Andre Paulk hit a layup, was fouled, and converted the free throw to give Shaw a 61-60 lead. SOSU answered with two quick buckets to reclaim the lead, 64-61.

With 59 seconds left in regulation, Johnson made a pair of free throws but that was immediately balanced by a Timmons jumper that gave Southeastern a 68-65 lead.

Forty seconds later, McCoy went up for a three point shot and was fouled. He hit the first two, then SOSU called a time out to try and ice him before the third shot. The tactic failed, McCoy hit the shot, and the game was sent into overtime when Timmons' last second jumper fell short of the mark.

Shaw scored the first five points in overtime and never gave up the lead. With 31 seconds left in overtime, Steven Kohli hit a three to cut the Shaw lead to only one, 80-79, but the Savage Storm immediately fouled Curtis Hines, who hit both free throws. Paulk added one more free throw with nine seconds on the clock to close out the scoring and give Shaw the win.

McCoy and Johnson were the only Bears in double figures with both Hunter and Paulk finishing with eight apiece. Johnson pulled in nine rebounds to lead Shaw while Keith Mitchell hauled in another eight. McCoy led the Bears with four assists.

Chris Roussell led Southeastern with 19 points while Oliveira had 17 and Kohli 12. Kohli had nine rebounds and Timmons had seven assists to lead the Savage Storm.

Shaw will now face host Kentucky Wesleyan in the championship match Saturday night at 8:30 p.m. eastern. At 6:30, Southeastern Oklahoma State will take on Concordia (NY) in the consolation game.
