Carl Richburg and the Mason Comets pulled one out of the clouds Wednesday night in Oxford, Ohio. With less than three minutes remaining Aiken had a commanding three point lead. But a couple of three pointers by Mason superstars Richburg and Matt Owens had the Comets right back in the thick of things. A couple of ill-advised shots and pass attempts later and the Comets forced overtime. After three quarters of tremendous defense the Falcons D flew the coup. Mason scored 27 points in the fourth quarter and 13 in overtime to outscore the Falcons 40-26 in the games final two periods. Richburg didn't have his finest night shooting 4-16, but his 12-14 from the line helped the Comets achieve victory! Matt Owens chipped in 19 for Coach Greg Richards's squad. Aiken was led by Solomon Johnson's 15 points and 8 rebounds.
