Nixon's buzzer-beating 3 lifts Colorado St over LBSU 68-66

FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) Prentiss Nixon drilled a 3-pointer at the buzzer and scored 14 points to lead Colorado State to a 68-66 win over Long Beach State on Saturday.

Nixon received the ball on the inbounds, angled right before he dribbled left behind his back and pulled up 5 feet behind line to knock down the winner over a defender.

The 49ers had taken a one-point lead on a layup by Deishuan Booker with four seconds remaining after Nixon had missed two free throws at 24 seconds and made 1 of 2 to break a 64-64 tie with 51 seconds to play.

Deion James also had 14 points for the Rams (7-6), who have won three straight. Che Bob had 13 points and 12 rebounds and J.D. Paige 11 points.

Temidayo Yussuf had 18 points off the bench for the 49ers (5-10), who lost their third straight. Gabe Levin added 15 points, Edon Maxhuni 12 and Booker 11.

After Long Beach opened the game with a 3, Colorado State second seven straight to start a 15-2 run. But the 49ers battled back to trail 34-31 at the half and lead by as many as six in a second half that had six ties and six lead changes.
