KEYSER, W.Va. — Potomac State had a chance to force overtime with a last-second shot from the top of the key, but the Catamounts were unable to convert and fell, 79-77, to Dundalk Thursday in Keyser.

The Cats led 38-36 at halftime and led by as much as 10 at one point during the second half, but they found themselves trailing by four with a minute left in regulation. They managed to tie the score with 27 seconds left and almost managed to trap the Lions as they crossed the half-court line. Dundalk escaped the trap with a time out and set up a score that gave them a 79-77 lead with 8.4 seconds remaining.

PSC got a look at a bucket at the buzzer, but saw the Lions come away with the rebound and the win.

Denzel Dulin knocked down 12 field goals as part of a game-high 27 points for Dundalk. Malachy Onwudiegwu added 11 points.

Potomac State was led by Reggie Baker and his 23 points on nine field goals. Jamal Ferguson scored 13 points and Derondell Jenkins added 12.

The Catamounts are at Chesapeake on Friday, Dec. 6.
