The Linn-Benton Community College men’s basketball team trailed by 14 points with 4:11 to go but mounted a furious comeback with an 18-4 run to tie it at 79-all and force overtime.
That comeback, however, fell short as Riley Davis’ 3-pointer at the buzzer in overtime was no good and the Roadrunners dropped out of fourth place in the NWAC South Division standings with a 90-88 loss to Clackamas.
The Roadrunners (13-10, 7-5) are now a half game behind the Cougars (17-6, 7-4) for the fourth spot.
Davis finished with 20 points, Matthew Ismay and Adam Harvey each added 12 and Nicholas Wolff and Jameel Morton chipped in 10 each in the tough loss.
Clackamas was 31 for 64 from the floor, including 15 for 32 from beyond the 3-point arc. LB was 25 for 76 but just 7 for 23 from 3.
The Roadrunners are at Mt. Hood on Saturday.
