    NEW BRITAIN, Conn. -- In his first game back after missing eight games, Kyle Vinales scored 20 points and had seven assists as Central Connecticut State beat Fairleigh Dickinson 91-86 in overtime on Saturday.

    Sidney Sanders, Jr. had 30 points, Mustafaa Jones 21 and Scooter Gillette 18 for the Knights (8-16, 4-6).

    Central Connecticut only made 5 of 9 free throws in the extra session, giving FDU a chance but the Knights only made 2 of 8 shots and had a pair of turnovers.
