Huntsville, TX (Sports Network) - The Sam Houston State Bearkats needed overtime to take down the UC Irvine Anteaters, 65-63, in the Huntsville sub-regional finale of the Legends Classic.

DeMarcus Gatlin scored 15 to lead the Bearkats (3-3), who won despite shooting 31.0 percent from the floor and 52.0 percent from the free throw line. Darius Gatson added 13 points.

No starter for UC Irvine (3-3) reached double figures. Chris McNealy scored a game-high 16 points off the bench while Adam Folker and Will Davis II combined for 25 rebounds.
