DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) Souleymane Koureissi scored the go-ahead basket with 36 seconds left, DaQuan Smith had 20 points and Radford beat Tarleton State 72-70 in overtime Sunday night in the first round of the CBI Tournament.
Koureissi, on the right block, turned into the lane and then spun baseline as he kissed a shot off the glass to give Radford the lead for good.
Smith was 8-of-15 shooting (3 for 6 from 3-point range) for the Highlanders (20-14). Shaquan Jules scored 16 points while finishing 8 of 8 from the floor, and added six rebounds. Bryan Antoine was 5-of-7 shooting (3 for 5 from 3-point range) to finish with 13 points.
The Texans (16-16) were led by Freddy Hicks, who posted 30 points, 11 rebounds and four steals. Jakorie Smith added 15 points, six rebounds and four assists for Tarleton State. In addition, Lue Williams finished with 12 points, seven rebounds and two steals.
Hicks made two free throws to give the Texans a one-point lead with 28 seconds left in regulation and then hit 1 of 2 from the foul line to make it 64-62 about 16 seconds later. Josiah Jeffers took the inbounds pass and worked his way up the court but missed potential tying layup attempt but Shaquan Jules followed with a two-hand put-back dunk with 3.1 seconds to go that eventually forced overtime.
