BOONE, N.C. -- Mike Groselle scored 10 of The Citadel's 12 points in overtime as the Bulldogs outlasted Appalachian State 80-77 Wednesday night, snapping a four-game skid.
Groselle, who finished with 22 points and 14 rebounds, made a layup to tie it at 68, forcing overtime, after The Citadel (7-19, 4-12 Southern Conference) saw its 10-point, second-half lead evaporate.
Groselle took it from there, making two baskets.
After Appalachian State knotted it at 74, Groselle added two foul shots. Tad Hamilton's 3-pointer pushed the Mountaineers ahead with 1:09 left, but Groselle answered with a layup, blocked Tevin Baskin's layup attempt and hit two free throws with 4 seconds left. Appalachian State's Mike Neal missed a trey at the buzzer.
Hamilton, Neal and Baskin scored 13 apiece for the Mountaineers (12-15, 8-8).
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.
