PSU Men Rally Past Cardinals

Updated:

PITTSBURG -- A.J. Adams tipped in a missed shot at the buzzer to force overtime and Pitt State pulled away in the extra session to claim a 74-69 victory over William Jewell Wednesday (Nov. 28) at John Lance Arena.

The Gorillas (5-1) trailed by as many as nine points of the Cardinals (2-3) in the first half and Pitt State still trailed 43-36 with 14:48 to play in the game.

The Gorillas reeled off seven straight points to tie the game at 43-43 with 13:05 remaining on Courtney Ingram's two free throws. Neither team led by more than three points down the stretch with 11 ties and four lead changes.

John Taylor tipped in Devonte Bell's missed jumper with 16 seconds to play in regulation to give WJC a 62-60 lead.

Following a timeout, Ingram attempted a long 3-point with the clock running down and Adams elevated and put back the miss as time expired, forcing an officials review to confirm the made basket and send the game to overtime.

Adams added Pitt State's first four points in OT and the Gorillas outscored the Cardinals 8-2 to grab a 70-64 lead on Rico Pierrevilus' two free throws with 46 seconds remaining.

WJC twice got as close as four points down the stretch, but Pitt State countered each late push to pull out the win.

Ingram led four Pitt State players in double figures with 16 points, while Sam Pugh added 14 points. Adams contributed 12 points and a game-high nine rebounds while Terrell Eaddy finished with 11 points.

Pierrevilus also had nine points and eight rebounds while Jake Bullard chipped in with eight points for the Gorillas, who finished the game shooting 48 percent (24 of 50) from the field.

Dillon Deck had 16 points and eight rebounds to pace the Cardinals, while Dwight Sistrunk (11) and Ricky Tisdale (10) also scored in double figures.
