Frostburg bests ’Cats on late trey
BUCKHANNON — Jamil Jones hit a 3-pointer from the corner with under five seconds remaining as Frostburg State claimed a 76-74 win over West Virginia Wesleyan Wednesday night in Mountain East Conference play at Rockefeller Center.
The game was tied at 73-73 before Dusan Vicentic hit one of two free throws to give the Bobcats a one-point lead with 10 seconds left.
But Daniel Alexander found Jones on the other end for the game-winning shot for FSU, which improved to 7-10 overall and 4-7 MEC.
Joe Adedayo led the way for the winners with 33 points, while Alexander posted 14 points and three assists.
Vicentic notched a game-high 34 points and grabbed nine rebounds for WVWC.
The Bobcats (6-11, 5-6) will travel to Davis & Elkins at 4 p.m. Saturday for a MEC contest.
