Cavs Fall in Overtime
HONOLULU (AP) - Louis Richardson dropped in two free throws with 7.6 seconds left in regulation and then scored six points in overtime Tuesday to lift New Mexico State to a come-from-behind 87-82 victory over Virginia in the fifth place game of the Rainbow Classic.
The Aggies (9-4) trailed by as much as 11 points five minutes into the second half, but steadily cut into the deficit, finally taking the lead on a 3-pointer by Richardson with 7:03 left.
Both teams exchanged leads five times before Virginia (7-5) moved ahead by five points, 74-69, with 18.4 ticks remaining.
However, Donminic Ellison hit a 3-pointer with 11.8 left to set the stage for Richardson's game-tieing free throws.
Richardson's free throw 16 seconds into the extra period put the Aggies ahead for good.
The Cavaliers inched to within two points - the last time with 1:11 left - but Richardson and Ellison each converted a pair of free throws to give New Mexico State breathing room.
Richardson and Denmark Reid, who left with an ankle injury late in the second half, each finished with 21 points, with Charles Gosa getting 17 points and 11 rebounds in a reserve role.
For the Cavaliers, Norman Nolan got his third double-double in three tournament games, finishing with 24 points and 10 boards. He had the same numbers Monday night Against Brigham Young and had 23 points and 11 rebounds against Nebraska.
