Mines men win season-opener

Point guard Alec Williams and head coach Eric Glenn getting ready for their first game in those roles after Glenn was promoted after the firing of Jason Henry just weeks before the season ...

Second half and a great out of bounds play here as Logan Elers finds Williams on the back cut and the freshman from Albany, Georgia finishes ... but the Hardrockers still trail as they did for the entire second half ...

Later, Williams navigates the pick and roll and finds Jack Fiddler in the corner ... and Fiddler makes some string music with that one as Mines is rallying ...

Mines now down four with under 20 seconds to play ... Jake Heath picks up an offensive rebound and he heads downtown to hit the three and cut the Javelinas lead to one ...

After one of two free throws for Kingsville, there are 5.6 left and here comes Williams ... he does his best Tyus Edney impersonation ... apologies to Jason Sutherland and Mizzou fans ... to tie this game up at 58 and we're headed to OT!

In overtime down one and Williams heads baseline and he finds Heath, who knocks down another triple and the 'Rockers are up two ... big shots from the Aussie down the stretch ...

And here is Williams, shot clock winding down ... his team up six ... and he plunges the dagger into the Javelinas ... Mines wins its opener by a final of 80-71.
