PITTSBURG -- Southwest Baptist rallied from a 22-point deficit with 12:33 to play in the game to stun Pittsburg State, 81-75, Saturday (Feb. 9) at John Lance Arena.

The Gorillas (14-7, 7-6 MIAA) led by nine points at halftime against the Bearcats (8-12, 5-7 MIAA) but surged in front 60-38 on Terrell Eaddy's two free throws with 12:33 to play.

Pitt State still led by 20, at 66-46, with 9:10 remaining, before SBU started an 11-2 run to trim the margin to 68-57 at the 5:55 mark.

Sam Pugh's transition layup still kept the Gorillas in front 74-65 with 3:35 remaining, but SBU ended the game on a 16-1 run to close out the contest and complete the rally.

Pitt State committed five consecutive turnovers before Adams finally made one of two free throws with 48 seconds to play. By then, the Bearcats had run off 12 straight points to push in front, 77-74.

Damion Hooks and Preston Guiot combined for 42 points for SBU, with Hooks scoring a game-high 22 points and Guiot adding 20 points. Rashaad Brown-Peterson added 15 points and Afamefuna Obukwelu finished with 11 points for the Bearcats.

Adams led the Gorillas with 19 points, while Marky Nolen (15) and Kaleb Porter (13) also scored in double figures.

The Gorillas will return to action next Saturday (Feb. 16) when they host Northeastern State at 3:30 p.m. (CST) at John Lance Arena.
