LAHAINA, Hawaii (AP) — Trevon Brazile had 20 points and nine rebounds off the bench, Ricky Council scored 19 points, and No. 9 Arkansas defeated No. 17 San Diego State 78-74 in overtime to take third place at the Maui Invitational.
It was an awesome finish.
Kamani Johnson tied the game in regulation.
Kamani Johnson’s two-handed follow of a missed layup tied the game as time ran out in regulation. In overtime, a 3-pointer by Darrion Trammell gave the Aztecs a 70-69 lead with 3:56 left but Council countered with a jumper that gave the Razorbacks a lead they would not surrender.
In the final seconds, the Aztecs’ Matt Bradley missed a potential tying layup with 3 seconds left and Johnson made a pair of free throws to seal the win.
