Sioux Falls, S.D. (Dec. 7, 2013) – The Sioux Falls Skyforce defeated the Fort Wayne Mad Ants 114-110 in overtime at the Sanford Pentagon Saturday night. Justin Hamilton made a free throw with 7.1 seconds left in regulation to tie the game and Sioux Falls outscored Fort Wayne 8-4 in the extra session to pick up the win.

 

Sioux Falls (4-2) trailed by as many as 16 points (31-15) in the opening quarter but cut the deficit to one point (46-45) following a 3-pointer by John Allen midway through the second quarter. Fort Wayne did not give up the lead and led 56-49 at halftime.

Fort Wayne scored the first nine points of the fourth quarter to go up 90-82 but Sioux Falls eventually regained the lead at 98-97 with 4:15 to go. Fort Wayne missed six free throws in the final minute of regulation and missed a potential game-winning shot in the final seconds following Hamilton’s free throw.

 

Olek Czyz had a chance to tie the game with 3.9 seconds left in overtime, but he missed two free throws and A.J. Davis made two free throws to ice the game and help Sioux Falls improve to 4-1 at home.
