CARBONDALE, Ill. -- Chaisson Allen hit one of two free throws with 2 seconds remaining in overtime to give Northeastern a 63-62 victory over Southern Illinois on Tuesday.

Allen finished with 12 points, including all three of the Huskies' points in overtime, and 10 rebounds. But he missed a free throw with 3 seconds left in regulation that could have won the game for the Huskies. He finished 1 of 3 from the line.
Joel Smith led Northeastern (2-0) with 19 points.
Southern Illinois' Carlton Fay had hit a free throw with 23 seconds left in regulation to tie the game at 60-60. Fay finished with nine points for the Salukis (0-2).
