BBK: Cardinals claim overtime victory

Bishop Diego closed out the Santa Barbara Holiday Classic with a come-from-behind 56-53 overtime win over Roosevelt on Tuesday.

Marcos Schneider paved the way with a team-high 18 points. Will Goodwin and Mitchell Cota both scored 11 points each. Schneider and Goodwin made a difference from beyond the arc, making seven 3-pointers combined.

The Cardinals rallied to victory after trailing by five points with two minutes remaining in regulation. Alexis Herrera stole the ball and recorded an assist on a layup by Cota. With 40 seconds to go, Schneider knocked down a long-range 3-pointer to tie the game.

In overtime, Goodwin, a freshman, made two 3-pointers to push Bishop Diego into the lead. Schneider then made a layup to put the Cardinals ahead for good.

Bishop Diego (6-10), which finished the tournament with two wins and two losses, plays next in its league opener on January 9 against rival Carpinteria.
