Wingateís Djuan Hankins (Roanoke, VA) forced the extra time with an old-fashioned three-point play with 32 seconds left. The Bulldogs scored first in overtime, but Luyk quickly answered with a hook shot and later put Catawba up 94-89 on a three-pointer with 2:51 left. The 6-9, sophomore center also blocked two of his career-high six blocks in the first two minutes of the overtime period. Hankins got the Bulldogs within a bucket after a three-pointer at the 2:36 mark, but a jumper by Kevin Petty (Sanford, NC) and a free throw by Duke Phipps (Newport News, VA) brought the lead back to five at 97-92 with 34 seconds remaining. Hankins would again trim the lead to three with five seconds left, but Phipps added two free throws with four seconds to play to ice the issue. Wingate took an 11-point lead in the opening half at 35-24 at the 5:43 mark, but Catawba reeled off 17 points to grab a 41-35 edge just before the half. Catawba would build its lead to 50-42 early in the second half, but Wingate would rally, scoring 11 of the next 13 points to lead 53-52. Catawba would regain the edge and led 78-71 with five minutes to play before Wingate rallied to o tie the game near the end of regulation.
