Buffalo State took and early six-point lead in the first half, but the first 20 minutes expired with Potsdam on top, 32-28. Potsdam led by as many as 14 points in the second half, and was up 65-59 with less than four minutes to play. Buffalo State rallied and led 69-67 with less than one minute to play, but the Bears’ Kathleen Lewis (Potsdam/Potsdam) hit a pair of free throws to even the score with 20 seconds remaining. Buffalo State’s 3-point attempt failed at the buzzer and sent the game to overtime.
