NEWBERRY - ­­­Inside a packed Eleazer Arena the Newberry College men's basketball team dropped their fourth straight game, 101-92 in double overtime against the Carson-Newman Eagles.

Senior guard Demarkus Smith poured in a game-high and career-high 30 points alongside 10 rebounds for his first double-double of the campaign.

In the second overtime Newberry and Carson-Newman were tied at 87 apiece following a layup by Smith. In the next 3:43, the Wolves got outscored 14-5 by way of six points from the Eagles’ Charles Clark.  During the first overtime session Carson-Newman and Newberry went toe-to-toe but the Wolves never trailed having at most a two point lead as well as seven ties throughout.

With a six point halftime lead, Carson-Newman was able to chip away at the Wolves lead and by the 12:07 mark, draw even at 44-44. With nearly six minutes passed since the tie, Newberry was able to extend the advantage to double digits at 60-50 following a Gerald Evans 3-point bucket. Evans finished the game with eight points and seven assists.

Newberry held the 10 point lead until the 5:18 mark before allowing Carson-Newman to creep back into the contest. Over the next 3:13 the Eagles connected on five-of-six from the floor while Newberry went one-of-four from the field and one-of-two from the charity stripe to bring the game at a deadlock of 67-67.

Both teams traded buckets before Jared Johnson hits a 3-point basket with 12 seconds remaining to tie the game at 73-73, the seventh tie of the game pushing it to overtime.

Early on in the game, Carson-Newman held multiple leads before Newberry received a 3-point basket from Smith to take a 13-12 lead at 13:26, one they stretched to nine 3:47 later at 23-14 following a pair of Smith’s seven free-throws on the night.

Two minutes later, James Stepp connected on a 3-pointer to give Newberry a 12 point advantage, 28-16. Carson-Newman trimmed the lead to three points after a Charles Clark 3-point play, but the Wolves scored five of the next seven points to enter the half with a six point advantage.

Stepp finished the game with 17 points, one point shy of his career-high 18 points. Mitch Riggs also finished in double figures for Newberry with 10 points.
