BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) Sidney Umude followed a missed jumper with two free throws to give Southern its first conference win in a 69-67 victory over Arkansas-Pine Bluff in overtime on Saturday night.
With the score tied 67-all, Umude struggled to get a shot off as time expired in the extra period and drew the foul. He then sank both free throws to give the Jaguars (2-16, 1-4 Southwestern Athletic Conference) the win, their first in conference and first against a Division I team this season.
Southern held Arkansas-Pine Bluff to just 25 points in the first half and led 41-25 at the break. But the Jaguars watched their lead evaporate in the second half, as they hit just six field goals in the period. The Golden Lions' Martaveous McKnight sank a jumper to tie it 60-all with 1:35 remaining in regulation and Southern missed three opportunities late, forcing the overtime.
