Sincere Carry scored twice in the final 11 seconds to force overtime and Marcus Weathers hit the second of two free throws with six seconds left in the extra period and Duquesne held off UIC, 89-88, on Monday night in the second of four season-opening Gotham Classic games.

Lamar Norman Jr. knocked down a 3-pointer with 2:12 left in overtime to give the Dukes (2-0) the lead, 86-85, and Eric Williams Jr. pushed it to 88-85 with a pair of free throws. Marcus Ottey made it a two-point game with the first of two free throws for UIC with 55 seconds remaining, but Weathers pushed it to three before Godwin Boahen scored on a layup with a second left.

The Flames had a four-point lead in the final seconds of regulation, but Carry got to the basket with :11 left to make it 80-78. After a Duquesne timeout, Carry stole the ball from Boahen and his layup with a second left tied the game at 80 and forced overtime.

In just his second game, freshman Carry finished with 32 points, eight assists, four steal and six rebounds. Williams added 18 points.

Tarkus Ferguson, Ottey and Rob Howard Jr. each finished with 18 points for UIC (0-3).

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
