McMillan helps Canisius beat Louisiana-Monroe in 3OT
LAS VEGAS (AP) Malcolm McMillan scored eight of his 21 in the third and final overtime and Kassius Robertson had a career-high 28 points as Canisius rallied Tuesday for an improbable 108-96 win over Louisiana-Monroe at the Continental Tire Las Vegas Classic.
ULM (5-6), which made 29 of 54 (54 percent) field goals in regulation, missed all six of its shots and committed four turnovers during its scoreless final OT. McMillan hit a 3-pointer and made 5 of 6 free throws for Canisius (5-6).
A free throw by Justin Roberson gave ULM a 77-64 lead with 1:10 left in regulation but Chris Atkinson scored eight as the Golden Griffins used a 14-1 run to send it into overtime. The Warhawks missed the front end of three 1-and-1s and were just 1 of 6 from the stripe during that span.
DeMondre Harvey had a career-high 19 points and season-high 14 rebounds for ULM.
