— CUMBERLAND — Ricky Mosley scored 40 points and D.J. Jones had 30, including a pair of free throws in the final seconds of overtime, to lead Allegany College to a 99-98 upset of Hagerstown Saturday night at Bob Kirk Arena.

The win in the regular-season finale sends Allegany into the Maryland JUCO Tournament with a 10-16 record. The Trojans, who were 5-10 in the conference, will likely play at Harford on Tuesday.

Hagerstown is 22-4 overall and was 13-2 in the conference.

Mosley hit 16 field goals and 7 of 8 foul shots for 40 points, seven shy of the school’s single-game record set by Tim Scaletta against Potomac State in 1967. Mosley also had 11 rebounds.

Jones had 10 field goals — six being three-pointers — and all four of his free throws in his 30-point game.

Alex Brayboy added 10 points and nine rebounds, Davon Williams eight points and 14 rebounds and Richie Mann nine points and eight assists for the Trojans.

Mosley scored 26 of his points after halftime, and during one stretch scored on five straight drives to the basket.

“It was a good college basketball game, from start to finish,’’ said AC coach Mike Baker. “I know they had 98 points, but we kind of frustrated them with our defense, making them shoot from the perimeter. Another key was that we out-rebounded them.”

Among the many heroes for the Trojans was Williams, who forced the overtime with a tip-in with eight-tenths of a second left that tied the game 86-86.

Hagerstown led 98-97 late in the overtime when Jones went to the basket and was fouled with 2.8 seconds to go. He made both free throws to put the Trojans ahead, and the Hawks failed on a long desperation shot at the buzzer.

“This is the best team effort we’ve had all year. And we had eight players who did it, because we had three out with injuries,’’ said Baker. “We’re capable of beating anybody in this league, we just have to show it. We’re a lot better than our record.”

Antonio Jenifer had 29 points and Kervin Rameau 24 for Hagerstown.

Salisbury 71, Frostburg State 70

FROSTBURG — Salisbury’s Travon Vann collected his own missed layup and converted the putback as the horn sounded in overtime as the Sea Gulls upended Frostburg State on Senior Day at Bobcat Arena.

Two seniors, Christian Jackson and DeSean Antoine, powered the Bobcats (8-15, 2-8 Capital Athletic Conference).

Jackson had game highs with 36 points, two shy of his career high, and 11 rebounds and is now No. 2 on the FSU all-time single-season scoring list with 601 points. He also had five three-pointers, four assists and three steals.

Antoine had 19 points and four three-point goals, including one in overtime that gave FSU a 66-65 lead with 3:19 to go.

Jackson, who had nine points in the final five minutes of regulation, hit two free throws with 12 seconds left to tie it at 61 to force overtime.

Royce Hunsberger hit a three-pointer with 52 seconds left to give FSU its last lead, 70-69. Vann erased it with his game-winning bucket at the buzzer.

Frostburg State plays its final regular-season home game on Wednesday against Marymount (Va.) at 8 p.m.

Garrett    77

Westmoreland    64

YOUNGWOOD, Pa. — Yannick Zanfack scored a season-high 20 points and led a balanced Garrett attack that sent the Lakers past Westmoreland in their regular-season finale.

Din Moore had 14 points and four assists, Steve Brown 12 points and Antonio Butler 10 for Garrett (15-9), which used a quick spurt, capped by a three-point shot by Zanfack, at the end of the first half for a 33-28 lead.

The lead ballooned to as much as 20 points with six minutes to play in the second half.

Guila Panzo had five points and a team-high 11 rebounds for Garrett.

Andy Carter had 27 points and Jordan Ruggiero 26 for Westmoreland.

It was the second game in as many nights for Garrett, which routed Lord Fairfax (Va.) 105-44 on Friday night. Brown had a season-high 21 points, Zanfack 15, Moore 14, D.J. Ritchie 13 and Butler eight points and seven assists.

The Lakers begin play in the Maryland JUCO Tournament on Tuesday, likely at Howard. Garrett was 7-8 in league play.

Beaver    105

Potomac State    58
