DALLAS, Texas – Chase Elliott’s basket with six seconds to play allowed Southwestern Oklahoma State University to emerge with a 79-78 victory over Dallas Baptist in the final day of the DBU Thanksgiving Men’s Basketball Classic Saturday.
The win improved the Bulldogs to 5-1 and returns them home where they will enjoy an extended break before meeting rival Central Oklahoma Tuesday, Dec. 6 in Weatherford.
Elliott who scored 14 of his team-high 19 points in the second half led a late-game rally as the Bulldogs beat the Patriots for the second time in a span of five days. Elliott made a pair of free throws to give SWOSU a 75-74 lead with 1:11 to play. It was SWOSU’s first lead since the early moments of the second half.
DBU went back ahead moments later on a basket by Ryan Marsh with 47 seconds to play only to see Elliott respond by putting the Bulldogs back in front. His short jumper put SWOSU ahead 77-76 with 30 seconds to play.
The Patriots then got two free throws by Nick Fox to move back in front only to see Elliott counter again with the game-winner at six seconds. The game was evenly contested throughout with the lead changing hands 19 times and being tied 13 others.
SWOSU ended the game making 28-of-58 attempts for 48 percent while making nearly half of their three-point attempts (12-of-25, 48%). The Patriots shot better making 52% of their shots on 22-of-42 attempts. However, the Bulldogs forced DBU into 19 turnovers while committing just 11.
