Benedictine University's men's basketball team had to work overtime on Tuesday evening, but ended up on the short end of a 77-75 score at Dominican University. The loss dropped the Eagles to 9-7 overall and 4-4 in the Northern Athletics Conference. With BU leading, 75-74 in the OT segment, the Stars shot and made a three-point basket with just one second remaining to snatch the victory from the Eagles. The loss overshadowed an outstanding effort by Benedictine senior guard Jared Bailey. Bailey led all scorers with 29 points - hitting 12-of-18 from the field - and four assists. Freshman Nate Green came off the BU bench to chip in 15 points and sophomore forward A.J. Brown added 13. Green and Brown both hit 6-of-11 from the floor. Cameron Snelling's 10 rebounds led either team. As a team, Benedictine was out-rebounded by a 40-35 margin for the game. Rob Bridgeman had three blocked shots, as well.
