Albright men fall to F&M in double overtime

READING - In a game the Lions nearly locked up on numerous occasions, the Albright College men's basketball team fell 95-92 in a double-overtime thriller to visiting Franklin & Marshall on Tuesday.

Albright led by five within the final three minutes of regulation, and then by at least that much in each of the two overtime sessions.

Leading 71-66 with 2:17 remaining, the Lions had a golden chance to extend the gap but committed an unforced turnover on the fast break. Calvert Gantz could have given Albright an eight-point lead with 1:07 left in the first overtime, but his layup rolled out.

Devin Figueroa sank a three-pointer for Franklin & Marshall with 1:19 remaining in regulation after nearly committing a double-dribble. Terrel Phelps then tied it at 75-75 in the final seconds with a tough three-pointer in a defender's face.
