Washington College rallied from a six-point deficit in the final 86 seconds of regulation, but Jimmy O'Brien's layup with one- tenth of a second left in overtime gave Muhlenberg a 91-89 victory over the Shoremen in Chestertown.

Tom Scott led Muhlenberg (4-4, 2-0 Centennial Conference) with 35 points. His steal with six seconds left in overtime led to O'Brien's game-winner and spoiled a 36-point effort by Washington College's David Horvath.

Horvath hit a school-record eight three-pointers for the Shoremen (3-6, 0-2). His seventh cut the Mules' lead to 76-75 with 50 seconds left in regulation.

Muhlenberg's Jeff Stewart hit the first of two free throws with six seconds left to make it 77-75.

But Stewart missed the second attempt, and Horvath was fouled on the rebound and made two free throws to force overtime.
