With the top two teams in America East (Stony Brook and Albany) scheduled to meet Friday night, the winner of Thursday’s contest between New Hampshire and UMass-Lowell could be within a game of first place heading into the weekend. The two teams produced an entertaining game in Lowell, Massachusetts, and the winner wasn’t decided until the game’s final shot.
Luckily for New Hampshire junior guard Daniel Dion had the ball in his hands, catching an inbounds pass and hitting a left-handed three-pointer as time expired to give the Wildcats a 78-76 win. Video of the shot, which was a tough one with Dion’s momentum taking him away from the basket, can be seen in the embedded tweet above.
Dion, who scored seven points off the bench, made just one of his four three-point attempts on the night. Good timing.
