Trailing 65-56 with less than seven minutes to go, Carney started the comeback with one of his six 3-pointers in the game. Davis hit a layup and two free throws to pull the Bulldogs to within 67-63 with four minutes remaining. After another 3-pointer by Carney, one free throw by Glenn Jordan and a layup from Davis, the game was tied 69-69 with under two minutes to go. Jordan scored a layup to give Hancock its first lead of the second half at 71-69 with less than a minute to play, but a dunk by Isaiah Bates sent the game into overtime. Hancock outscored Yuba 6-3 in overtime to earn the comeback win.
