Walker leads DePaul over Detroit 68-66 in OTNov 28, 2009 - 9:28 PM ROSEMONT, Ill.(AP) -- Will Walker scored 20 points, including the go-ahead 3-pointer with 44.7 seconds left in overtime Saturday, leading DePaul to a 68-66 victory over Detroit.
Eric Wallace added a career-high 16 points for DePaul (4-1), which has defeated Detroit in 12 of the teams' last 13 meetings.
Thomas Kennedy scored 17 points and Chase Simon 16 for the Titans (4-2). They made it 63-all on Simon's 3-pointer with 1:17 to play as coach Ray McCallum was screaming that the shot clock was about to expire.
Walker then dribbled out most of the clock before making his long 3-pointer for a 66-63 lead.
After Detroit's Xavier Keeling made one of two free throws and DePaul's Tony Freeland missed two foul shots, Simon misfired on a 3-pointer.
Ryan Siggins grabbed the rebound and fed Wallace for a fast break dunk to made it 68-64. Lamar Lee hit a meaningless shot at the buzzer.
