Fresno, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Marvelle Harris scored a game-high 27 points as the Fresno State Bulldogs captured a 71-67 overtime victory versus the Northern Arizona Lumberjacks on the final day of the Fresno State Classic at the Save Mart Center.

The Lumberjacks (2-6) were paced by Max Jacobsen with 21 points on 9-of-14 shooting from the floor, while Quinton Upshur posted 11 points, although he converted a mere 3-of-13 from the field, including 1-of-9 behind the 3-point line.

In the extra session the teams experienced the seventh tie of the day at 67-67 with just over a minute to play, but a jumper by Guerrero with 34 seconds left put the Bulldogs ahead for good.

Northern Arizona hurt itself with only 4-of-18 shooting on the outside and a disappointing 13-of-22 showing at the free-throw line.
