ATLANTA (AP) - Jamont Gordon scored 23 points and Mississippi State survived a scary weather delay of more than an hour during overtime to beat Alabama 69-67 in the Southeastern Conference tournament quarterfinals Friday night.
Mykal Riley, who led Alabama with 18 points, forced the overtime with a dramatic 3-pointer that spun around the rim and hit the backboard before falling through the net for a 59-59 tie as the buzzer sounded to end regulation.
Then, a severe storm moving through downtown Atlanta ripped holes in the Georgia Dome and sent fans fleeing for the exits, causing a delay of 1 hour, 5 minutes with 2:11 left in overtime.
Riley missed another 3-pointer at the end of the overtime.
Mississippi State will play in Saturday's semifinals against the winner of the Georgia-Kentucky game.
