ORANGEBURG, S.C. (AP) -- Matthew Hezekiah, who scored 19 points, hit two go-ahead free throws with 12.7 seconds left in overtime to lift South Carolina State past Bethune-Cookman 69-67 Monday night.

Bethune-Cookman (2-19, 0-6 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) jumped out to a 29-10 lead in the first half and led 38-25 at halftime.
