EDMOND, Okla. --  The Fort Hays State University men's basketball team delivered a huge comeback and won at University of Central Oklahoma 101-97 in overtime on Thursday night.

Sophomore point guard Craig Nicholson tied the game with a 3-pointer with 10 seconds left in regulation and UCO missed a pair of free throws with 1.6 seconds left. FHSU improved to 13-3, 5-3 MIAA. The Bronchos dropped to 10-5 overall, 4-4 MIAA. The Tigers have won five in a row in MIAA play, including three on the road.

FHSU trailed by 11 at halftime and UCO led by six with 47 seconds remaining. Tom Gabric was fouled on a three-point attempt with 36 seconds remaining. He hit all three foul shots. UCO missed two foul shots.

Then, Nicholson hit two foul shots and UCO made two. Down three, Nicholson's trey tied the game.

The Tigers never trailed in the overtime. Senior Dwayne Brunson tallied 31 points and Nicholson finished with 19 points, nine assists and seven rebounds. James Fleming played 32 minutes off the bench and scored a career-high 20 points.

FHSU, on pace to break last year's record for free throw percentage, shot 26 of 31 from the foul line, or 84 percent. UCO finished 25 of 38 (66 percent) from the foul line. Josh Gibbs led the Bronchos with 25 points and nine rebounds.

In the women's game, the No. 23-ranked Tigers used a big second half run and earned a 64-38 victory on Thursday. FHSU has won four in a row and improved to 12-2, 6-2 MIAA. UCO dropped to 9-6, 4-4 MIAA. Junior center Kate Lehman finished with 18 points and 12 rebounds and defensive specialists Keriann Shaw (eight rebounds) and Taylor Chandler (three steals) had big games.
