Bethune-Cookman 83, N. Carolina A&T 78 (2OT)
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP)—Antonio Webb scored a career-high 35 points, including all 11 of Bethune-Cookman’s points in the second overtime, to lift the Wildcats to an 83-78 win over North Carolina A&T on Monday night.
Webb scored 26 points in the second half and two overtime periods. He hit 7-of-9 3-point attempts in the game, including all three of his tries after the end of regulation.
Webb’s two free throws with 8.1 seconds left in the first overtime forced the second extra period, and the Aggies, outscored 11-6, couldn’t keep up with Webb in the final period.
The win snapped a four-game losing streak for the Wildcats (7-10, 4-4 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) while North Carolina A&T (3-15, 2-5) had now lost 27 straight road games.
Diondre Larmond added 15 points and Michael Williams 12 for Bethune-Cookman, who also got 11 points from Anis Taylor.
Jeff Alvis led the Aggies with 16 points while Sean Booker and Steven Koger each added 13 apiece. Demetrius Guions finished with 12 points for the Aggies and Rechodd Carter had 11.
Bethune-Cookman started hot behind Larmond and Webb, pushing to a 36-20 halftime edge. But the Aggies gradually cut into that margin, finally tying things at 63-all with 16.7 seconds left in regulation on a 3-pointer by Greg Roberts.
