Late jumper negates Mount St. Mary's rally, lifts Wagner, 74-73

Wagner's Courtney Pritchard hit a 15-foot jump shot with 2.2 seconds remaining to give the Seahawks a 74-73 Northeast Conference men's basketball victory over host Mount St. Mary's yesterday in Emmitsburg.

Pritchard's shot spoiled a Mount St. Mary's rally during which the Mountaineers (4-11, 2-3 NEC) came back from 10 down in the second half to take a 67-66 lead on Antonio Johnson's put-back with 3:49 left.


After the teams traded baskets for the next three minutes, the Mountaineers took a 73-72 lead on Nick Dodson's dunk with 29.8 seconds left. But Pritchard shook a Mount St. Mary's defender and hit the winner on the Seahawks' next possession.

Nigel Wyatte and Jamal Webb scored 15 apiece for Wagner (4-10, 1-3). Kiel Butler scored 16 for Mount St. Mary's.
