HAMDEN, Conn. (AP) Jerry Johnson scored eight of his 19 points in overtime to lead Fairfield to an 89-86 victory over Quinnipiac on Friday night.

Johnson's floater gave Fairfield (14-11, 9-7 Metro Atlantic Athletic) an 87-82 lead with 1:23 left in overtime. Chaise Daniels' dunk with 38 seconds remaining got Quinnipiac (10-17, 7-10) within 88-86 but Peter Kiss turned the ball over and Johnson added a free throw with three seconds left before Kiss missed a long 3-point try.

Quinnipiac, which trailed by 14 midway through the second half, led 78-76 with 3.6 seconds left in regulation after Phil Winston made 1 of 2 free throws. But the Stags' Amadou Sidibe took an outlet pass at midcourt and fed a cutting Tyler Nelson, who laid the ball in with 0.1 remaining.

Nelson finished with 24 points and a career-high 12 assists.
