Mississippi State holds off Loyola in 65-64 OT win
MISSISSIPPI ST 65, LOYOLA CHI 64

STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) -- Mississippi State's Craig Sword and
Roquez Johnson combined for 44 points as the Bulldogs held off
Loyola 65-64 in overtime Sunday.

Sword had a game-high 24 points and put MSU (5-1) in front for
good with an old-fashioned three-point play with 1:36 left in
overtime. Johnson had a career-best 20 points and also his first
double-double of the season with 11 rebounds.

Sword was 8-of-12 from the floor and 8-of-10 from the free-throw
line.

MSU shot 46.8 percent from the floor and was just 4 of 16 beyond
the arc. Loyola shot 42.6 percent and out-rebounded the Bulldogs
35-27.

Loyola (3-5) was led by Milton Doyle's 22 points. Christian
Thomas had 12 points for the Ramblers while Devon Turk added 10
points.

Doyle had an opportunity to win it at the buzzer for Loyola but
his 3-point attempt at the buzzer was blocked by MSU's Fred
Thomas.

The contest was just the third overall meeting between the two
schools with the first game coming in the historic 1963 NCAA
Tournament. The Ramblers won last year's meeting 59-51 in what
was the 50th anniversary of that initial meeting between the two
programs.

MSU and Loyola were tied at 29-29 at halftime despite the
Bulldogs shooting 38 percent. Loyola shot 50 percent in the
first half and led MSU in rebounding 15-13 but had eight
first-half turnovers. MSU finished with just nine turnovers
while Loyola had 14 for the game.

The game was tied 13 times and featured 20 lead changes.
