American U. 73, UMBC 70

John Schoof scored the game’s final four points – all free

throws – as American University topped Maryland-Baltimore County

73-70 in double overtime Thursday night in a nonconference

contest.

With American (4-5) trailing 70-69 with 2:06 left in the second

overtime, Schoof, whose 19 points tied Daniel Munoz for the team

high, hit both free throws after being fouled by Chase Plummer. The

teams combined to miss four shots from the floor the rest of the

way, with Schoof hitting two more foul shots with 10 seconds

left.

Schoof made two free throws to put the Eagles up 67-64 with 1:58

left in the first overtime, but Plummer (16 points) hit a jumper

and a free throw to tie the game.

After Stephen Lumpkins’ layup put American ahead 69-67 in the

second overtime, Plummer drained a 3, setting up Schoof’s free

throws.

Ryan Cook led UMBC (2-7) with 24 points.
