    JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (AP) -- Henry Harris made a 3-pointer with 1:36 left in overtime to give Belmont a 75-74 victory Tuesday night over East Tennessee State in a battle of Atlantic Sun unbeatens.

    Defending league champion Belmont (9-5, 3-0) scored five points in the last 2:02 for the win. Courtney Pigram missed a 3-pointer at the buzzer for the Buccaneers (8-7, 2-1).

    East Tennessee was leading 74-70 on a tip-in by Andrew Reed with 2:43 left. Belmont's Andrew Preston made a jumper with 2:02 left to cut it to 74-72.

    Neither team scored in the last 1:34 of regulation after Belmont's Justin Hare tied it 70-70 with a layup.

    Reserve Boomer Herndon led the Bruins' balanced scoring with 15 points, hitting 7-of-9 from the floor. Hare had 14 points, Preston 13 and a team-high 8 rebounds, and Matthew Dotson and Harris 10 points each.

    Reed led ETSU with 23 points, Pigram had 20 and Dequan Twilley 10.

    The Bruins shot 53 percent for the game to 42 percent for ETSU. Neither team shot well from the free throw line, with Belmont making 6-of-14 and ETSU 11-of-23.
