Niagara Wins In OT, 102-93

(Purpleeagles.com)-

NIAGARA UNIV., N.Y. - The Niagara men's basketball team rallied in the second half to defeat the Central Connecticut State Blue Devils, 102-93, in overtime to tip off its 2011-12 season.

The Purple Eagles, who were buoyed by 23 points from Marvin Jordan and freshman Juan'ya Green, capped off a dramatic season-opening win in front of an energetic Gallagher Center crowd for their first season-opening overtime game since topping rival UB 12 seasons ago.

"That was a great win," head coach Joe Mihalich said. "We should have lost that game three different times (but) we found a way to win. We learned tonight that we have heart, toughness and winners so if we can learn the other things then we can be a good team."
