Fayne sparks Illinois St to 76-68 OT win over S Illinois

ST. LOUIS (AP) Phil Fayne scored 13 of his career-high 26 points in overtime and No. 3 seed Illinois State turned back second-seeded Southern Illinois 76-68 in a semifinal of the Missouri Valley Conference Tournament on Saturday.

The Redbirds (18-14) earned a date with top-seeded Illinois-Chicago in Sunday's championship game.

Fayne, a 49 percent shooter from the free-throw line coming in, made just 1 of 4 from the line in the final 1:42, but the one he made sent the game to overtime tied at 56. Fayne, who scored the final four points of regulation, scored the first 11 points for Illinois State in the extra period and his 3-point play with 2:43 left gave the Redbirds a 65-61 lead. Fayne was 5 of 10 from the foul line through regulation, but he made all seven of his free-throw tries in overtime. He added nine rebounds and blocked three shots.
