Wesleyan 102 Murray 101!

Owensboro, KY., Jan 19.- Owenboroans wouldn't have believed it if they hadn't seen it here tonight! When the basket-shooting was over between Kentucky Wesleyan and Murray State in spacious Sportcenter the scoreboard showed: Kentucky Wesleyan 102, Murray State 101! And that scoreboard was no pin-ball machine gone haywire. The score was just that, little Wesleyan upsetting powerful Murray by the unbelievable score of 102 to 101. That's an Owensboro record; basketball historians will be checking their files and memories in the next few days if it also isn't a record for college teams in Kentucky. One Overtime Period The game went one overtime. It was tied at 95-95 at the end of regulation time. With one second remaining in the regular game, Murray was leading 95-94 when Gipe fouled Luther Westerfield and his free throw tied the score. Wesleyan grabbed the lead in the extra period ad Pardue sank two charity tosses, but Bennie Purcell connected on two straight field goals to put Murray ahead 99-97. Daniel went the length of the floor to score on a driving layup that knotted the count at 99 all. Daniel then sank a free throw to give Wesleyan a 100-99 edge. Pardue then sank another long shot to put Wesleyan ahead 102-99, but Bailey sank a short one to end the scoring and the ball game. From The Courier-Journal, January 20, 1952 Page 25
