Non-stop afternoon basketball is without a question the best thing about conference tournament week. A close second, though, are game-winners.

We got our first Monday night.

Drew McDonald connected on a 3 with under 2 seconds left to help second-seeded Northern Kentucky defeat three-seed Oakland, 64-63, in the semifinals of the Horizon League tourney.

A simple little slip out to the 3-point line got McDonald wide open, and he delivered.

Northern Kentucky now draws top seed Wright State in the Horizon final tomorrow night for a spot in the NCAA tournament.
