INDIANAPOLIS (AP)—Armon Bassett scored 14 points and hit a 3-pointer at the buzzer to help Ohio nip IUPUI 63-62 Wednesday night.
The Bobcats (9-5) rallied after trailing 61-56 with 56 seconds to play. A dunk by Ivo Baltic and two free throws by Jay Kinney pulled Ohio to within one with 32 seconds remaining.
Billy Pettiford then hit the second of two free throws with 4 seconds left to give the Jaguars (10-7) a 62-60 advantage, but it wasn’t enough.
D.J. Cooper took the inbounds pass, dribbled up the court through IUPUI’s defense and into the lane before passing off to Bassett, who was wide open in the corner.
Kinney finished with 12 points, and Cooper had nine assists.
Robert Glenn finished with 20 points and Alex Young had 14 for the Jaguars.
The game was tied 21-21 at halftime and featured seven ties and six lead changes.
