Last-second overtime basket keeps Roadrunners a perfect 3-0 in basketball

Ricky Sears’ buzzer-beating shot kept Dalton State College’s men’s basketball team undefeated with a 97-95 overtime win Tuesday night at Southern Wesleyan University in Central, S.C.

The Roadrunners (3-0) held an 81-78 lead with just seconds remaining in regulation time when the Warriors’ Terrance Hutchins made a 3-pointer to tie the game. In overtime, Southern Wesleyan (1-2) led 92-90 when Sears made a 3-pointer to give Dalton State the lead with 42 seconds remaining.

Southern Wesleyan tied the game with a free throw, and the two teams traded trips to the foul line for their next two points, setting up Dalton State’s final possession with five seconds remaining.

The Roadrunners, who trailed 46-39 at halftime, fell behind 58-50 with 13:53 remaining. Dalton State went on an 11-2 run for the next four minutes and grabbed a 71-66 lead with 6:12 remaining on a fast break from Sears.

The Roadrunners’ biggest lead was 76-70 after Sean Tate hit a 3-pointer with 2:53 left in regulation.

Sears scored 16 points, while Demetrice Jacobs led Dalton State with 22 points, 12 rebounds and five steals. Preston Earle added 20 points.

Sean Tate scored half of his 14 points from the free-throw line, hitting on all seven attempts. He also led the team with six assists.

Hutchins led all scorers with 28 points.

Dalton State made 13 of 32 3-point attempts for a 40.6 percentage, the same mark the Roadrunners shot from the field. They also turned the ball over 17 times, five fewer than their opponents.

The Roadrunners’ home opener against Hiwassee College is at 7 p.m. Thursday at the trade center in Dalton.
