Austin Spurs fall in overtime at Reno


Bryn Forbes sank two free throws to force overtime, but the Austin Spurs fell 97-91 to the Reno Bighorns in Nevada on Wednesday night.

A 7-0 run in the overtime period helped seal the win for the Bighorns (9-13).

Six Spurs scored in double digits, but the team shot just 34 percent as the win slipped away in the fourth quarter and overtime.

Forbes scored 15 points while Charles Garcia added 14 for Austin. Patricio Garino and Cory Jefferson each scored 11 while Daniel Stewart and Ryan Arcidiacono each chipped in ten. Jefferson had a doube-double as he pulled down ten rebounds.

Reno’s Isaiah Cousins led all scorers with 19 points. He had five assists and four steals.

Pe’Shon Howard had 18 points while Lamar Patterson added 16 for Reno.

Skal Labissiere, Georgios Papagiannis and Mark Tyndale each recorded double-doubles for the Bighorns. Labissiere had 12 points and ten boards. Papagiannis scored ten points to go with 12 rebounds while Tyndale had ten points and 11 boards.

Holding a seven-point lead heading into the final period, the Spurs (9-14) seemed poised to win back-to-back games for the first time since Nov. 19. A 12-0 run by the Bighorns early in the final period put them up 75-69, leaving the Spurs at a disadvantage.

The Spurs fought back to tie the game, but they came up short as they were outscored 10-4 in overtime.

Austin next takes on Oklahoma City on the road on Saturday at 7 p.m.
