SLU Outlasts GMU in OT, Wins 89-85
No. 10 SLU won its 18th straight game, and remained unblemished on the road and in Atlantic 10 Conference play (11-0).
Senior guard Jordair Jett took over the game in the second half, scoring 24 of his 25 points in the final 25 minutes.
With star Dwayne Evans fouled out of the game, Jett along with big man Rob Loe cemented the victory for the Bills.
Trailing 77-73 in overtime, Loe dropped three-pointers on consecutive possessions and Jett added two buckets to give SLU breathing room at 85-79.
The first half featured several ebbs and flows, as the Bills roared out to a 9-2 lead behind three triples only to see GMU knife back and take a 16-15 advantage. Heading into the locker room, the Patriots had all the momentum after a Bryon Allen steal and leaning-in three-pointer put the home squad ahead of SLU 35-32 at the halftime break.
Mike McCall Jr., Jake Barnett, Evans, and Loe all tallied in double figures to carry SLU to the come-from-behind win.
SLU tried mightily to give the game away, finishing just 21-for-35 from the free-throw line.
George Mason guard Sherrod Wright was unconscious for much of the night, pouring in 34 points in a losing effort.
NEXT UP: SLU returns home to face George Washington, one of the top teams in the A-10.
