SAN ANTONIO -- Jared Savage scored 24 points and grabbed a career-high 16 rebounds as Western Kentucky beat UTSA 77-73 in overtime on Saturday.
Jhivvan Jackson, who came in as the nation's second-leading scorer at 26.9 points per game, finished with 27 and became UTSA's all-time leading scorer with 1,924 points, passing Devin Brown (1,922 points, 1998-02). However, the junior was just 8-of-24 shooting, making 3 of 10 from the arc, and missed his last five field-goal attempts in overtime.
WKU's Taveion Hollingsworth, who scored 23 points, made two free throws for a 75-71 lead with 29.6 seconds left in overtime. Jackson was fouled behind the 3-point arc with 4.4 left and made two free throws before failing to hit the rim while trying to miss the third. Savage then made two free throws.
Hollingsworth's one-hander in the paint tied the game at 64 with 41.9 seconds left in regulation and Jackson and Hollingsworth then missed jumpers.
