Fordham’s Antwonie Anderson hit a buzzer-beating three to send St. Joe's to an 86-83 double-overtime loss Saturday night at Hagan Arena.
St. Joe's (10-12, 3-7 A-10) dropped its second straight home game while Fordham (10-13, 4-6 A-10) won its second straight on the road.
Charlie Brown was the reason St. Joe’s was able to stay afloat after another slow start. His three triples in the first half helped give the Hawks a 19-11 advantage early on. He kept the hot hand going later in the game as he drained three more from beyond the arc and set a new career-high with 22 points.
Despite his hot start, Brown was scoreless in both overtimes.
Lamarr Kimble led the way for that Hawks with 24 points, four rebounds and five assists.
To go to overtime
St. Joe's led by 15 with 9:44 left, but Fordham used a 9-0 run to get within 61-59 with one minute remaining in the game.
With 15 seconds left in the game, Lamarr Kimble drained a go-ahead three to give the Hawks a 64-62 lead. Fordham’s Joe Chartouny answered right back as he hit a game-tying basket to force overtime.
To go to overtime... again
Chris Clover drove baseline and scored to pull St. Joe's within two, 75-73. After a foul and two missed free throws from Fordham, Kimble was fouled going for a layup with 5 seconds left. He drained both free throws to tie the game and force a second overtime.
