Lowe helps RIT win OT thriller (Basketball)
Marcus Lowe of Anchorage was at his playmaking best tonight in helping Rochester Institute of Technology outlast Empire 8 rival Nazareth in an overtime thriller.
Lowe, of Service High fame, dished off a team-best six assists in an 89-87 victory. He added four points and three rebounds.
Better yet, the 5-foot-8 sophomore guard didn’t have a single turnover in 32 minutes, including all five minutes of OT.
The game featured a fantastic finish as Nazarene drilled a 3-pointer with three seconds left in regulation to force OT and RIT won it with a layup with six seconds left in the extra session.
The NCAA Division III Tigers of New York improved to 9-11 overall with five regular-season games left before the Emprie 8 Tournament.
