YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -- Gary Talton led five players in double figures with 23 points, grabbed nine rebounds and dished out eight assists in Illinois-Chicago's 88-83 triple overtime win against Horizon League foe Youngstown State on Sunday.
Talton's jumper with 2 seconds left in regulation sent the game into overtime; Kendrick Perry, who had 29 points for Youngstown State (14-11, 6-6), hit a 3-pointer with 2 seconds left to force a second OT, and Humes' trey with 48 seconds showing produced the final extra frame.
In the third OT, Illinois-Chicago (15-10, 6-6) led by four before Perry cut it to 78-77 with a three-point play at the 1:06 mark. But Barnes answered with a 3 and Tralton hit two free throws to seal it.
After a season that saw his shooting numbers slip, should Nigel Hayes return for his senior year at Wisconsin or take the gamble to put him name in this year's NBA draft?
