Tennessee State won in double overtime, 93-90, but the win was earned in the final seconds of regulation.
Divine Myles drove. He spun and offered a shot from 8′ out. Defender and TSU’s leading scorer Keron DeShields denied. Wayne Martin challenged for rebound. Landed. And still bounded back up to collect the critical rebound.
Basketball fans and media so frequently admire offensive exploits, but the two offensive leaders on Tennessee State earned the opportunity to win with defensive plays.
Stetson also made a final stop of their own. As the first overtime wrapped, Deshields tried a leaner on Divine Myles. The shot found the rim, but not the net. Enter another overtime.
TSU pulled away slightly in the second overtime.
