Schreiner men falter in final minutes of overtime to Trinity, 95-84

Alex Dehoyos scores 27 points but it's not enough to lift the Mountaineers

If you can say anything about the Schreiner University men's basketball team, it is — oh, so close.

The Mountaineers, masters of the close loss, forced overtime against visiting Trinity University but collapsed in the final two minutes to fall 95-84. The game was the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference opener for both programs.

Schreiner University's Alex Dehoyos attacked Trinity for 27 points on Saturday.

Despite shooting 39% from the field, including just 12.5% from 3-point range, the Mountaineers had opportunities to put Trinity away on Saturday night. Trailing 44-41 at halftime, Schreiner took a 47-46 lead on a Jackson Reid 3-pointer — one of just three the Mountaineers converted on the night.

The two teams traded leads in the second half, with Schreiner holding a six-point lead with 12 minutes remaining, but Trinity repeatedly answered.

The Mountaineers forced overtime when Kamden Ross drove for a layup and drew a foul. Ross converted a free throw to tie the game at 79-79 with 16 seconds left. On Trinity's next possession, Ross forced a steal, but the clock ran out before the Mountaineers could run a play.

Trinity outscored Schreiner 8-1 over the final two minutes of overtime.

The outcome spoiled a season-high 27-point performance by senior guard Alex Dehoyos. Bronson Evans had a season-high 20 points for the Mountaineers.

Schreiner will try to rebound on Tuesday at Texas Lutheran University. The Mountaineers are now 2-6 on the season.
