Ichabods End Gorillas Season With 92-90 OT Win

Updated:

PITTSBURG - Chris Davis hit a deep 3-pointer with 20 seconds to play in overtime to help lift Washburn University to a 92-90 victory over Pittsburg State University Saturday (Mar. 1) at John Lance Arena.

The loss ended the Gorillas season with an 8-18 overall record, including a 4-15 mark in MIAA play. Pitt State needed a win over Washburn (17-9, 10-9 MIAA) and a Southwest Baptist victory over Missouri Western to qualify for the MIAA Postseason Tournament.

Devon Branch, who led all scorers with a career-high 34 points in the game, hit a guarded jumper with nine seconds remaining in regulation to put the Gorillas in front, 81-79, but Kyle Wiggins drove the length of the floor and countered with a contested layup with 3.0 seconds remaining to knot the score.

Pitt State inbounded the ball to Connor Kjer but he was unable to get off a shot before the buzzer, sending the game to the extra period.

In the extra session, Kjer hit a 3-pointer and Branch added a mid-range jumper to give the Gorillas an 86-83 lead with 2:12 to play.

Leon Flowers trimmed the margin to a point with two free throws at the 1:55 mark and, after a missed 3 by Kjer, Davis hit a jumper to put the Ichabods up 87-86 with 1:03 to go.

Sam Pugh then missed a 3-pointer for Pitt State with 50 seconds to play, setting up Davis to hit the clutch 3-pointer for WU to give the Ichabods the two-possession lead.

Branch made 14 of 19 shots from the field in the contest as Pitt State shot 50.8 percent from the field (32 of 63) as a team in the game. Jake Bullard added 14 points and Kjer finished with 11.

Wiggins had a team-leading 27 points for the Ichabods, who shot 55.7 percent from the floor for the game (34 of 61). Alex North added a double-double with 24 points and a game-high 12 rebounds. Davis also finished in double figures with 13 points and Flowers added 11 more.
