Gonzaga Gets Edged Out 81-80 By New Mexico In Overtime
Jan. 2, 2001
SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - Rueben Douglas hit a baseline jumper to give the New Mexico Lobos an 81-80 overtime victory over Gonzaga Tuesday night in a game delayed by a shattered backboard.
Douglas scored 23 points to lead New Mexico (10-1). Marlon Parmer scored 5 of his 17 points in overtime for the Lobos.
Down 61-51 in the second half, Gonzaga (6-4) came back after Casey Calvary shattered his team's backboard, forcing a 42-minute delay.
Calvary hung on the rim for only a moment after missing an attempted slam dunk 11 minutes into the second half but that was long enough for the glass to break and send players running for cover.
Calvary also missed a potential game-winning shot with 3.4 seconds left in overtime. He led the Bulldogs with 22 points and 11 rebounds. Blake Stepp added 13 points.
The Lobos and forward Wayland White took control midway through the first
half. Near the eleven-minute mark White blocked a shot, scored an alley-oop
dunk, grabbed an offensive rebound and made an assist while flat on his back.
Soon after, the Lobos took the lead 30-29 on an Eric Chatfield lay-in.
