Green Bay Edges Loyola 73-70 In OT

CHICAGO (AP) — Kam Cerroni hit a 3-pointer with 1 second left in overtime, giving Green Bay a 73-70 victory over Loyola (Ill.) on Thursday night.

Brennan Cougill led the Phoenix (14-14, 9-8 Horizon League) with 19 points. Alec Brown had a double-double with 18 points and 12 rebounds, Keifer Sykes scored 13 and Steve Baker added 10.

Ben Averkamp notched his sixth career double-double with 26 points and 10 rebounds for the Ramblers (7-21, 1-16). Joe Crisman scored 12. Jordan Hicks and Denzel Brito added 10 apiece.

With Loyola down 63-59, Averkamp hit a jumper with 10 seconds to go and then tipped in Brito’s miss at the buzzer to force overtime.

Cougill and Averkamp scored five points each in overtime, with Averkamp’s free throw tying it at 70 with 8 seconds to go.

But Averkamp missed his second attempt, and then Cerroni, the league’s top 3-point shooter, ended the game.
