Cam Martin drops 46 as Lions outshoot, oust Ichabods 101-100

With his unconscious offensive performance cut short, the Ichabods fought all the way back within one before failing to get a shot off in the final seconds of a 101-100 opening-round NCAA Tournament loss Saturday in Bearcat Arena.

3 on the school’s all-time scoring list, needed one more bucket to complete a furious comeback and extend his collegiate career, but dribbled off his foot with 5 seconds left to leave No.

Braelon Walker added four 3-pointers in the second half to give Southern a school-record 22 for the game, one shy of a Division II NCAA Tournament record.

Wilson answered with yet another 3-pointer to make it 101-98 with one minute left, and a Blake layup brought WU within one with 38 seconds remaining, but neither team scored the rest of the way.

Blake threw the ball in with 6.4 seconds left following a jump-ball call, and came off a screen to receive a pass at the top of the key, but a mishandled dribble allowed the clock to run out on WU’s rally.

3-Point Goals — MSSU 22-38 (Marin 9-10, Clark 8-17, Walker 4-6, Lambert 1-3, Tharp 0-1, Jennings 0-1); WU 10-19 (Geiman 3-5, Lewis 2-3, Salach 2-3, Wilson 1-1, Martin 1-1, Blake 1-5, McKee 0-1).
