Overtime Loss ends Connecticut Trip

The Mount is headed home from Connecticut without a win after dropping Saturday's game at Central Connecticut State 66-65 in overtime.

Joe Seymore scored with 3.4 seconds left in to give the Devils the win. Seymore's basket came after two misses on the trip by the CCSU.

The Mount led 65-64 when Jean Cajou was fouled with 26 seconds left. Cajou missed the front end of the one-on-one, and Markus Mitchell grabbed the rebound. But Mitchell walked, giving the ball back to the Devils.

Jeremy Goode's desperation 35-footer hit the rim but no more and the Mount fell to 0-2 in the NEC.

There are plenty of reasons the Mount can use for its loss but none is more glaring than the horrid 4-of-13 performance from the foul line.

Goode led the Mount with 19 points while Kelly Beidler had a great second half and matched his career high with 17. Cajou scored seven points in overtime, which were all his for the game. Ken Horton led the Devils with 22.

I'll try to have some more in depth analysis tomorrow. But at the moment, I'm not sure what to say.
