Division III Game Won in Seventh Overtime: The Skidmore Thoroughbreds beat the Southern Vermont Mountaineers 128-123 Tuesday night a seven-overtime marathon, the longest game in NCAA Division III men's basketball history and matching the longest NCAA men's game at any level. The teams combined for 166 rebounds and 230 field goal attempts and Southern Vermont guard Lance Spratling played all 75 minutes. Skidmore freshman guard Eli Johnson didn't enter the game until the fifth overtime. His only points of the game were a game-tying 3-pointer with 10 seconds left in the sixth overtime.

Southern Vermont guard Lance Spratling was the only player who played all 75 minutes, fatigue surely contributing to him missing all 13 three-pointers he attempted during a woeful 10-for-40 shooting night.

Stop shooting! Both teams shot 37%, the box score was pretty ugly.

If he'd sunk the winning shot, he would have "pulled a Klima".

A Klima? How about a Kerr?
