games.

took control. He dunked with 1:39 left to bring the Mountaineers
within 61-60 and then tied the score on a free throw with 47
seconds to play.

He missed the second, but Robert Morris’ Velton Jones turned the
ball over to set up the game-winning play. Mezie Nwigwe missed a
3 with 2 seconds left.

Morris.
