Rams Win Second In A Row In Double Overtime Thriller

Winston-Salem, NC - Augusta State senior guard Chris Harriman scored a season-high 21 points, yet it wasn't enough as the Jags battled Winston-Salem State into double overtime before falling 87-80 Monday night in the CD Gaines Center.

Four players in all netted double-figure scoring efforts for ASU. David Siebrands posted 17 points, his fifth straight game in double figures, while Jermale Wilkerson and Marty Dunham added 13 points each. Wilkerson recorded seven assists and three steals as well.

The loss drops the Jaguars to 2-4 overall, though they still remain undefeated at 2-0 in Peach Belt Conference play. WSSU improves to 4-4.

ASU jumped out to a 5-0 lead and led throughout most of the first half. Winston-Salem State's Darnell Gregory canned two free throws with four seconds left to pull hosts even at 33-all heading into halftime.

The Jags led by as much as eight in the second half and held the lead for over 10 minutes. Jermale Wilkerson's layup with 11 seconds remaining gave ASU a 67-65 advantage only to have WSSU's Juston White score on a layup with :05 left to force overtime.

Alleggrie Guinn's free throw with four seconds remaining in the first overtime forced a second extra frame. ASU failed to score in the final 2:01 after taking a three-point lead on a Dunham layup.

Winston-Salem never trailed in the second overtime.
