NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- David Bell grabbed a career-high 17 rebounds and made key free throws late to help Jacksonville beat Lipscomb 89-85 in overtime on Thursday night.
Bell's two free throws with 4 seconds left in regulation stretched the Sharks' lead to 75-72. Following a Lipscomb (7-13, 2-5 Atlantic Sun Conference) timeout, Michael Buckland dribbled to the top of the arc and heaved a 3-point shot that hit the front of the rim, the backboard and then into the net at the buzzer to force overtime.
Jacksonville (9-12, 2-4) opened the extra period on a 7-0 spurt capped by Bell's jumper. Buckland hit another 3 to pull the Bisons to 87-85 with 3 seconds to play before Bell made two free throws to seal it.
