LEXINGTON, Va. -- Ian Chiles scored inside at the buzzer to give Morgan State a dramatic 81-80 overtime victory over Virginia Military Institute Saturday in nonconference action.
Chiles, one of four Bears in double figures with 13 points, scored after VMI's Rodney Glasgow missed a jumper with the shot clock running down. Shaquille Duncan (17 points, 14 rebounds) grabbed the rebound and Morgan State called a timeout with two seconds left in OT.
The Bears (3-3), who overcame a 10-point halftime deficit to force overtime, had trailed 80-79 after Rasean Simpson missed the second of two free throws with 38 seconds left.
Stan Okoye, who led all scorers with 29 points and took 11 rebounds, made 5 of 6 free throws late in the second half. Glasgow's two foul shots with 0:10 remaining in regulation forced overtime for the Keydets (3-5).
Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
Guard Naz Mitrou-Long, whose 2015-16 season ended in December due to hip problems, has been granted a hardship waiver for the coming season, Iowa State said.
As the Sooners look to life without superstar Buddy Hield and his sidekicks, it's clear their unseasoned players will need to grow up fast.
