Alanzo Bass hit a pair of free throws with two seconds left to give Indiana-South Bend a 60-58 win over University of St. Francis in Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference play Thursday night at the Sullivan Center.
USF (10-6, 6-4 CCAC) took a 57-56 lead when freshman Logan Timmons made two free throws with :56 to go.
With :12 left, Bass made a layup and was called for an offensive foul on the play. The basket counted, but the foul sent USF junior Mark Peters to the line for two shots. He converted one of the two attempts to even the score at 58-58.
USF had a chance to tie or win, but a shot from just outside the three-point arc missed as time expired.
The Saints led most of the way. USF was up 30-23 at halftime before building its largest lead 44-32 at the 10:28 mark.
Bass finished with 13 points, 12 rebounds, four steals and three assists. Steven Heatherly led the Titans (11-6, 8-3) with 14 points, while Chris Beam and Kyle Heatherly added 12 and 10, respectively.
Senior Billy Hubly and junior Andrew Lerg paced the Saints with 11 points apiece.
The loss snapped the Saints’ four-game winning streak and marked their first home setback in seven games.
USF entertains Olivet Nazarene at 3 p.m. Saturday.
