MARSHALL, Minn. -- The Fort Hays State University men's basketball team held off Upper Iowa University 97-90 in overtime on Sunday, moving the Tigers to 2-0 on the season.

The Peacocks hit a 3-pointer with 39 seconds left to play to send the game to overtime. The Tigers started the overtime period on a 6-0 run and held on for the win.

The team's fought a back-and-forth first half, the largest lead coming at 13-7 FHSU, while Upper Iowa's largest lead came at 21-16.

The Tigers led 40-39 at halftime.

FHSU controlled the start of the second half, opening on a 9-0 run. Upper Iowa (0-2) rallied back from the 10-point deficit to retake the lead at 63-62 with 10:17 to play. A James Fleming 3-pointer gave the lead back to FHSU, which it held on to until Upper Iowa tied it in the final minute.

There were 14 lead changes and 12 ties in the game.

Senior forward Dwayne Brunson led the Tigers with 25 points and 12 rebounds after scoring only 2 points in the season opener. Sophomore guard Craig Nicholson added 20 points and nine assists.
