    ORANGEBURG, S.C. -- Matthew Hezekiah, who scored 19 points, hit two go-ahead free throws with 12.7 seconds left in overtime to lift South Carolina State past Bethune-Cookman 69-67 Monday night.

    Bethune-Cookman (2-19, 0-6 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) jumped out to a 29-10 lead in the first half and led 38-25 at halftime.

    The Bulldogs (6-12, 2-3) crawled back in the second half and Hezekiah hit a jumper with 1:27 remaining to force overtime.

    Hezekiah tied the score at 67 in overtime with a layup at the 1:46 mark. Following a missed 3-pointer and layup by the Wildcats, Hezekiah sank two from the line for the final margin. Clemmye Owens couldn't connect on a 3-pointer as time expired.

    Adama Adams had 13 points with eight assists, while Jalen White and Karon Wright each chipped in 10 points for the Bulldogs.

    Maurice Taylor paced the Wildcats with 20 points and Malik Jackson added 13.
