CHICAGO, Ill.- The Brandeis Men's basketball team pulled out a hard fought overtime victory 97-89 on the road against Chicago University in an University Athletic Association contest. The Judges countered a spectacular 44 point performance by senior guard Matt Johnson (Ann Arbor, Mich./ Pioneer) with two outstanding performances by senior guards Vytas Kriskus (Kvedarna, Lithuania/ Holderness School (N.H.)) and Tyrone Hughes (Dorchester, Mass./ Taft School) as well as great bench play. Kriskus led Brandeis with 31 points while Hughes completed the vaunted triple-double with 17 points, and career-highs of 11 rebounds, and 11 assists. Hughes also hit a game-tying, buzzer-beating lay-up after Brandeis inbounded the ball with 1.4 seconds left in regulation to rally the visitors from 13 points down with lessthan 5:30 left and force overtime. The Judges halt their two game UAA skid and improve to 9-7 (3-2 UAA), remaining one game behind WashU, NYU and Emory in the conference standings, while the Maroons fall to 9-7 (2-3 UAA).
