BINGHAMPTON, N.Y. (AP) - Clancy Rugg scored 25 points as America East Conference-leading Vermont survived an overtime scare from last-place Binghamton 92-82 on Sunday.

Brian Voelkel’s three-point play, on a jump shot and free throw, gave Vermont a one-point lead with 41 seconds in regulation. Voelkel then fouled Jordan Reed, but Reed made just 1 of 2 free throws and the game went to overtime.

Binghamton went cold in the extra session, making just 2 of 7 shots, while Vermont went 12 of 13 from the foul line.

Binghamton used an 8-0 run to lead 37-32 at half and the Bearcats led by five with 1:43 left. But Rugg’s layup and free throw cut it to two before Voelkel’s play.

Sandro Carissimo added 20 points for Vermont. Voelkel finished with 15. Rugg went 19 of 21 from the line.

Reed led Binghamton with 30 points and 14 rebounds. Yosef Yacob added 22 points.
