WINCHESTER, Va. - Visiting Lynchburg erased a double-digit deficit late in the second half to steal a 98-95 ODAC men's basketball victory over Shenandoah Saturday afternoon at the James R. Wilkins, Jr. Athletics & Events Center.

Shenandoah (8-15, 3-11 ODAC) led by 10, 74-64, following a Christopher Chaney layup with 6:15 to play in regulation, but saw Lynchburg (12-11, 6-8) 13-3 down the stretch to force overtime.

LC hit a pair of 3-pointers to start the extra session and held the lead for the remainder of the contest.

SU, which found itself down by six in OT, was able to cut it to one, on a Dominic Steward 3-pointer with three seconds left.

Chance Greene then hit a pair from the line for the visitors to extend the advantage out to three. Following Greene's second free throw, Shenandoah inbounded and got the ball to Jalyn Jarrett at midcourt.

Jarrett took two dribbles and launched a 30-footer that just glanced off the rim as time expired.
