    NEW YORK — With a partial power outage, an overly excited quarterback and a game that suddenly turned from snoozer to sizzler, CBS had its hands full at the Super Bowl.

    The Cowboys secured an 89-86 win, outscoring the ThunderWolves 18-10 over the last seven minutes. Lionel Coleman’s dunk off a Stargell Love assist made it 87-83, and after the Wolves missed three long shots on the other end, Coleman drew a foul and made both free throws with :04 left.

    Stargell Love added 14, Stuart Sullivan 12 and Lavell McDade 11.
