Pridgen scores 20, Northeastern downs Manhattan 69-67 in OT

LONDON (AP) — Joe Pridgen 20 points scored 20 points, including an ally-oop feed from Chase Cormier with 2.6 seconds left in overtime to give Northeastern a 69-67 win over Manhattan in the London Classic on Thursday.

To get their first win the Huskies had to survive a wild finish to regulation. Cormier was fouled on a 3-pointer with a half second to play and Manhattan leading 56-55. Cormier missed the first free throw but made the second to tie the game. Then the Huskies made an illegal substitution so Anthony Nelson steps up and puts the Jasper back on top.
