The Bucks outscored the Dukes 10-1 in overtime Friday for a 58-49 win. Coton Schmidt racked up a game-high 20 points for Wellington but his teammates struggled to get on the board. Still, the Dukes traded leads with Buckeye through four topsy-turvy quarters. The Bucks had their own champion in Joey Bartinelli, who netted 19 points, but also had Carter Hudek, who contributed another 15.
