HUNTINGDON, PA. - Sophomore guard Mike Klinger hit a running, 30-foot 3-pointer at the buzzer to give Drew University a 64-63 men's basketball victory over Juniata in overtime on Saturday afternoon.

It was the third consecutive game for Drew that has been decided by one point. The Rangers are 2-1 in those games. Drew is now 8-7 overall this season. Juniata (11-4) had taken a 63-61 lead a second earlier on a layup before Klinger hit his dramatic buzzer-beater.
Klinger finished with 17 points and three assists. John Ford scored 11 points and grabbed six rebounds for Drew, which survived a difficult shooting day from the field, where the Rangers hit just 35 percent (18 of 51) of their shots. They were actually more accurate from 3-point range, where they sank nine of 23 for 39 percent. Ford and Klinger each canned three 3-pointers. 
 
Drew's next game is at 7 p.m. Wednesday night against Scranton in Baldwin Gym on the Drew campus in Madison.
