GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) Sandy Cohen III scored 23 points as Green Bay narrowly beat Texas Southern 87-86 in overtime in the semifinals of the CollegeInsider.com Postseason Tournament on Tuesday night.
Cohen stole it at the top of the 3-point arc and raced the other way for a dunk and free throw for an 85-82 lead with 1:10 to go.
Jeremy Combs made a put-back shot with eight seconds left to give Texas Southern an 86-85 lead but after a timeout, Cohen dribbled down the court and sank a free-throw line jumper at 1.5. The Tigers' heave at the buzzer didn't hit the rim.
Trevian Bell added a career-high 21 points for the Phoenix (21-16). Tank Hemphill had 12 points and Cohen reached 1,000 points in just his 59th game with Green Bay.
Green Bay will play at Marshall on Thursday night in the championship game.
