Wyche FT gives Saint Peter's CIT title, 62-61 over A&M-CC

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) Quadir Welton had a double-double and Trevis Wyche made the winning free throw with less than a second remaining and Saint Peter's won the CIT championship with a 62-61 win over Texas A&M-Corpus Christi on Friday night.

Cavon Baker scored 15 points to lead the Peacocks (23-13). Welton, the CollegeInsider.com Tournament MVP, had 12 points and 13 rebounds.

"A lot of emotion. I'm very happy right now," Welton, the newphew of former NBA standout Rasheed Wallace, said. "We've been doing it all season. I'm happy for my team, happy for our school."
