James Miller scored seven of his career-high 33 points in the second overtime as the Howard Bison outlasted the visiting Gwynedd Mercy Griffins 96-83 on Saturday at Burr Gymnasium in Washington, D.C.
Miller, a sophomore guard, helped Howard (4-3) win its third straight and beat out the stubborn Division III opponent from Pennsylvania.
The Bison needed some help as top scorer James Daniel, a sophomore guard, had to sit out because of a thigh injury.
But Miller stepped up — and he needed to thanks to a strong effort from Gwynedd Mercy sophomore guard Arron Goodman, who scored a career-high 24 points before fouling out.
Goodman made two free throws to tie the game with .8 second left in regulation, but he missed on a third that would have given Gwynedd Mercy (4-2) a big upset.
Goodman and Miller each helped in overtime. However, Goodman fouled out, and that hurt the Griffins on offense.
Junior guard James Carlton also helped Howard with 26 points and 13 rebounds, his first career double-double.
Howard goes to Duquesne on Tuesday for its next game. Gwynedd Mercy returns to action Wednesday at Cairn.
