Cohen III hits game-winner in OT

Sandy Cohen III's late-game heroics now has UW-Green Bay on the verge of a postseason championship. The Phoenix defeated Texas Southern 87-86 in overtime on Tuesday night in the semifinals of the CollegeInsiders.com Tournament. Texas Southern took the lead on a putback layup by Jeremy Combs with eight seconds left. UW-Green Bay called a timeout and called a play for Cohen who came down the floor to hit a foul line jumper with 1.5 seconds left. Texas Southern's heave did not hit the rim.

 

The game was tied at 76 going to overtime after the Tigers finished regulation on a 6-0 run.

 

Cohen tied with Texas Southern's Tyrik Armstrong for a game-high 23 points. 

 

The Phoenix will travel to Marshall on Thursday in the championship game of the CIT, tip-off at 6 PM.
