UCF posts OT win over Oklahoma St. in Bahamas semifinal

Jayhlon Young swished a pair of go-ahead free throws with 1:30 left in overtime, C.J. Kelly scored 18 points and Taylor Hendricks had a double-double of 16 points and 12 rebounds to lift UCF to a 60-56 win against Oklahoma State on Friday in a Baha Mar Hoops tournament semifinal in Nassau, Bahamas.

UCF (3-1) advances to meet Santa Clara in the tournament championship on Sunday. Oklahoma State (2-2) will face DePaul in the consolation game.

Moussa Cisse had 14 points and 14 rebounds for Oklahoma State to notch his third straight double-double. Avery Anderson III had 12 points and five assists, while Kalib Boone scored 10 points.

Both teams had an opportunity for a winning basket in the closing seconds of regulation but were unable to convert. With the Knights leading 58-56, C.J. Walker blocked a Cisse shot out of bounds with seven seconds to go. John-Michael Wright’s attempt at a tying basket was no good with one second remaining.

The Cowboys led by as many as 17 late in the first half, but the Knights crept to within 41-40 on a Kelly 3-pointer with 7:41 to play, then took a 45-44 lead on a Hendricks trey with 4:56 left.

The Knights started 4-for-20 from the field and didn’t reach double figures as a team until a Hendricks trey with 5:36 left in the first half.

Oklahoma State missed its final six field goal attempts and shot 29.3 percent in the game, including 2-for-20 from 3-point range. UCF shot 30.5 percent.

The Knights committed 21 turnovers compared to 18 for the Cowboys.

Oklahoma State went 38.5 percent from the floor in the first half but frustrated the Knights further by blocking six shots, including four by Cisse. During one sequence, Cisse recovered from an unsuccessful lob attempt on the offensive end to track down a Knights’ run in transition and block a layup from beyond.
