ST. LOUIS (AP) — Mike Crawford scored nine of his 22 points in the second overtime and made a layup at the buzzer, Reggie Agbeko added 17 points, and Saint Louis beat George Mason 76-74 on Wednesday night.

Jalen Jenkins made one of two free throws, Jaire Grayer hit a 3 from the corner, and the Patriots led 70-65 in 2OT. Crawford made a layup and two free throws, then tied it at 72 with a 3-pointer. Agbeko’s jumper gave the Billikens a 74-72 edge, but Justin Kier tied it with two free throws with 11 seconds to go.
