UC Riverside 62, Youngstown St. 60
David Chavarria nailed a jump shot just before the buzzer to
boost UC Riverside to a thrilling 62-60 victory over Youngstown
State on Saturday.
The Highlanders (11-15) led by as many as 11 points early in the
second half but struggled as the Penguins (8-19) slowly caught up
and tied the game at 60 on a jumper by Vytas Sulskis with just 24
seconds to go.
With three seconds left, the Highlanders’ Lateef McMullan tried
for two but missed. That’s when Chavarria grabbed the offensive
rebound and made the jumper for the win.
Chavarria finished with seven points. Kyle Austin led the
Highlanders in scoring with 13 points, while Brandon Dowdy added 11
and Larry Gurganious had 10.
Sulskis led the game in scoring with 18 points and was the only
Youngstown State player to score double digits.
