Sacred Heart vs Wagner

Wagner 84, Sacred Heart 78

  •  

NEW YORK (AP) - Kenneth Ortiz scored 17 points and Wagner didn't let the disappearance of an 11-point, second-half lead stop it from defeating Northeast Conference-foe Sacred Heart 84-78 in overtime Thursday night.

The Seahawks (12-8, 6-3) led 49-38 with 14:01 remaining, but Sacred Heart (8-12, 6-3) chipped to within 56-53 with 8:06 left and then closed regulation with an 8-2 run to force overtime. Shane Gibson drained consecutive 3-pointers to start the run, and then Phil Gaetano hit two free throws with 28 seconds left to tie it 71-71 and force the extra session.

Wagner opened overtime on an 8-2 run. Gaetano pulled the Pioneers within 79-76 with a 3-pointer, but the Seahawks closed with a 5-2 stretch to wrap up the win.

Gibson, the reigning NEC Player of the Week, finished with 22 points, while Gaetano added 12 points and 11 assists.

Wagner improved to 6-1 at home this year.
