State hoops: Late 3-pointer lifts Towson men over Monmouth in OT, 79-75

Senior forward Alex Gavrilovic hit a 3-pointer from the corner to give Towson the lead with 3.5 seconds remaining in overtime in a come-from-behind 79-75 victory over host Monmouth in the final game Sunday of the CBE Hall of Fame Classic.

With the scored tied and 36 seconds remaining, Gavrilovic grabbed a rebound off a shot by forward Eddie Keith II and put it back for a dunk to give the Tigers a 74-72 lead. After a timeout, Hawks guard Andrew Nicholas drained a long 3-pointer despite a hand in his face.

McGlynn had a career-high 27 points on 5-for-8 shooting from beyond the arc, and was 6-for-7 from the foul line. Freshman John Davis earned his second double double of the season with 22 points and 13 rebounds. Guard A.J. Astroth also had a career day with 22 points, and forward Timajh Parker-Rivera added 10 rebounds.
