St. Bonaventure forced double overtime on their way to a 98-93 win over St. Joe's on Wednesday night in Atlantic 10 play. The loss ends the regular season for the Red Hawks, who will pick things up next week as the Atlantic 10 tournament kicks off in Atlantic City.

The Bonnies rallied twice, including a 7-2 run in the last three minutes of regulation to force the extra frame. With just 20 seconds to go in the first overtime, Matthew Wright and Andrew Nicholson each sunk three-pointers to force a second overtime.

Nicholson had 32 points and 14 rebounds, leading the team in both categories, in the win.

Langston Galloway and Carl Jones both scored 20 points for the Hawks, two of four players from St. Joe's in double figures. Together, both Jones and Galloway combined for 19 three-point attempts; they made eight.

St. Joe's entered the game on a high note, knocking off Temple on Saturday.
