Western Carolina gets 56-54 OT win over Samford
WESTRN CAROLINA 56, SAMFORD 54

CULLOWHEE, N.C. (AP) -- Mike Brown hit a game-winning,
buzzer-beating jumper in overtime to boost Western Carolina over
Samford 56-54 Saturday in each teams' regular-season finale.



The win ensures Western Carolina (13-18, 9-9 Southern
Conference) the sixth seed in the SoCon tournament. Samford
(11-20, 9-9) earned the fifth seed with Appalachian State's win
over Chattanooga earlier Saturday.



After neither team scored in the final 4 minutes of regulation,
the teams exchanged baskets in overtime, with Raijon Kelly
pulling Samford to a 54-54 tie with 1:09 left.



WCU missed a jumper, then Samford turned it over with 16 seconds
left. After a Samford defender knocked the ball out of bounds,
the Catamounts called timeout with 3 seconds remaining. Brown
hit his jumper off the inbound.



Brown was 2-of-8 shooting with just four points. Tawaski King
and Brandon Boggs paced WCU with 12 points each.



Tim Williams had 13 points and 13 rebounds to lead Samford.
