Bethune-Cookman tumbles in overtime

ORANGEBURG, S.C. -- LaRon Mapp, who had missed four games with an injured shoulder, scored 21 points, including the winning basket, as South Carolina State beat Bethune-Cookman 69-66 in overtime Saturday.

Mapp's driving layup with nine seconds left gave the Bulldogs a 67-66 lead.

Bethune tried a long pass to Brian Cox on its next possession, but the throw was high and Cox came down out of bounds.

Vincent Whitt made two free throws for South Carolina State. The Wildcats missed a last-ditch three-pointer.

South Carolina State snapped a four-game losing streak and handed Bethune-Cookman its third straight loss.

Mapp's basket with 54 seconds left in regulation tied the score at 58. Both teams missed several chances to win in the final minute.

Whitt had 17 points and Dexter Hall and Najia Taylor 11 each for South Carolina State. Mapp had 10 rebounds.

Tyree Harris had 15 points and Moses Cage 11 for Bethune-Cookman. Derricus Lockwood added 10 points but shot 2-for-18.

It looked as if Mapp had hit a critical three-pointer with 14 seconds left in overtime, but South Carolina State called timeout just before he shot.

W. FLORIDA 61, W. ALABAMA 59: Marcus Tanner had 19 points and eight rebounds as the host Argonauts rode to victory on a second-half surge.

The game featured six ties and 10 lead changes before West Florida went on a 10-4 run to start the second half, giving it a 33-32 lead it never lost. The Argonauts, who committed 11 first-half turnovers, shot 53 percent in the second half to 24 percent for the Tigers.

Kirby Oliver came off the bench to score 14 points for West Florida. Sharrod Williams had eight rebounds, and Kelly Powe had 10 points and four blocks.

Gerald Burris had 16 points and Khamari Ballard 15 for West Alabama.
