MACON, Ga. (AP) Pookie Powell nailed a 3-point jumper and added two free throws in the third overtime to give La Salle a 98-96 win over Mercer on Thursday night.

Powell, who hit 4 of 6 from distance, finished with 20 points. Jordan Price led La Salle (6-4) with 26 points. B.J. Johnson added 23 and grabbed 11 rebounds.

Johnson drilled a 3 to start the third extra period. Tony Washington followed with a layup and Powell nailed his trey to give the Explorers enough cushion to hold off Mercer (5-7).
