RADFORD, Va. -- R.J. Price scored 16 points and Radford defeated Cincinnati Christian 76-71 in overtime Monday night after squandering a 21-point lead.

The Highlanders, who opened their season with a 12-point loss at Wake Forest, led 14-3 after eight minutes and 39-20 at the break.

After Brandon Holcomb's two free throws put Radford ahead by 21 to open the second half, Cincinnati Christian (0-4) chipped away, getting to 60-58 with 3:51 remaining.
