RALEIGH, NC - Tyrrel Tate's jumper, with 5.1 seconds remaining in overtime, gave the Fayetteville State Broncos a 59-57 victory against Saint Augustine's in the season finale on Saturday afternoon. The Broncos will head into the CIAA Tournament next week with confidence after capturing the hard-fought win over the Falcons. Lenton Donnell (Sr., Wilmington, NC) led FSU for the second straight game with 13 points.
FSU shot 51.8 percent from the floor (29-of-56) and converted six of its 13 3-point attempts.

Louis Craft(Fayetteville, NC) continues to make the shots he takes. He has converted on 71.2 percent of the field goal attempts he's attempted this year, which would easily rank first in the CIAA if he had enough shots to qualify statistically.
