D-III Hoops game goes seven overtimes

SVC vs. Skidmore/Courtesy: adam samrov-bennington banner
In front of a crowd estimated at 142. Yeah, that's right, Skidmore College and Southern Vermont College played a basketball game last night that went a full 7 overtimes before they had a winner.

Skidmore won the game, final score 128-123 tying an NCAA record set back in 1981 (Cincinnati vs. Bradley). One player, Lance Spratling, well he played all 75 minutes. Wonder what he's doing this morning.

The Burlington Free-Press, breaks down the game by the numbers RIGHT HERE

The game's biggest lead was by 9, early in the second half, neither team however could pull away. It really is kinda funny to think that the teams combined for 166 rebounds, a number larger than the attendance and also an NCAA record.
