It took overtime for the Central Washington University Wildcats to beat the Trailblazers Friday.

Dixie State University led by seven points at halftime after shooting nearly 46 percent from the field. Nearing the end of the second half, the Trailblazers held a two-point advantage with under a minute to play. The Wildcats made a layup with 27 seconds left to force overtime.

CWU held the Trailblazers to just nine points in the extra period and held on to the win, 99-95. DSU only connected on seven of its 25 3-point field goals and shot a mere 56 percent from the charity stripe.

Junior guard Trevor Hill led the Trailblazers with 22 points, 15 rebounds and six assists. Sophomore guard Brandon Miller added 16 points to the cause and while redshirt senior forward Marcus Bradley chipped in 14 points and six rebounds.

The Trailblazers are still winless on the season but hope to change that as they face off against Seattle Pacific University Saturday.
