NEWARK, N.J. -- — A.J. Reeves hit a wide-open corner 3-poi nter on a busted play with 3.1 seconds left in overtime to lead Providence to an 80-77 win over Seton Hall on Sunday.
On the following possession for the Pirates, Takal Molson missed a 3-pointer, and the Friars hung on for the victory.
It was Duke who curled in from the right side driving for a score with about five seconds left only to draw three defenders. He managed to stop without drawing a travel call and threaded a bounce pass to Reeves who was wide open in the far corner.
Reeves scored seven points for Providence (5-2, 1-0 Big East), which has won its last three.
The Pirates’ Sandro Mamukelashvili converted a three-point play to even the score at 72 with 8 seconds left in regulation and send the game to overtime. Mamukelashvili had 20 points and six assists for the Pirates (5-4, 2-1), whose four-game win streak ended. Myles Cale and Jared Rhoden each added 16 points.
