DeKalb won its second consecutive road game Tuesday with a 69-63 win over LaSalle-Peru in overtime.

Andre Harris scored a team-high 22 points as DeKalb beat LaSalle-Peru, 69-63, in overtime on the road. Jake Smith had 16 points while Jake Carpenter had 13 and Rudy Lopez chipped in 12.

The Barbs (6-20) defeated Kaneland last Friday.

Cogs edged by R-B: Genoa-Kingston couldn’t close out Richmond-Burton in a 62-61 loss to the Rockets.

Adam Price led the Cogs with 18 points. Tommy Lucca had 15 while Mason Lucca and Sal Lopez each chipped in 10.

“We had four guys score in double figures, you’d think that would be enough to win,” G-K coach Corey Jenkins said. “We did not finish, we had an opportunity to seal the deal late in the game and didn’t get it done.”

The Cogs are 13-10, including 5-5 in the Big Northern Conference East.
