Peacock’s only basket wins it for Texas State 72-70
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Alex Peacock made his only field goal count, hitting a long, buzzer-beating jumper to lift Texas State to a 72-70 victory over Little Rock on Saturday night.
Peacock’s winner came after Little Rock (5-14, 2-4 Sun Belt) tied the game after scoring on Andre Jones’ 3-pointer with 14 seconds left and, after a Bobcats turnover, an Oliver Black dunk with five seconds remaining.
Tre’Larenz Nottingham scored 14 points with Immanuel King and Nijal Pearson adding 12 each and Shelby Adams 11 for the Bobcats (12-7, 5-1), who have won five straight.
Jones finished with 19 points and Kris Bankston and Cameron Corcoran 14 each for the Trojans, who shot 58 percent but were outscored 18-8 on second-chance points.
Neither team led by more than eight with the Bobcats taking a 33-32 lead at the break. The lead changed hands four times and the game was tied five times in the second half.
