LORETTO, Pa. (WTAJ) – Saint Francis basketball wrapped up the season with a crazy game to cap a season played in crazy circumstances.

Mount St. Mary’s defeated SFU 72-65 forcing overtime and pulling off an improbable comeback.

The Mountaineers tied the game up with a shot on the final possession of regulation. The visitors started off overtime with six straight points and eventually held off the Red Flash to get the win.
