Andrew Larson led the T-Birds with 23 points. Jerod Dorby scored 19 and added 13 rebounds while Cyrus Gray collected 12 points and seven rebounds.

The T-Birds won Saturday’s exhibition game at Mount Douglas 66-61 in overtime.

Dorby set the pace with 16 points and 14 rebounds. Larson and Gray had 15 points apiece.

Marcus Morano hit a pair of clutch three-pointers in overtime.
