Huntsville Heartbreak: Bisons Fall on Last-Second Layup by UAH

SEARCY – Alabama-Huntsville's Zane Campbell caught a full-court pass and made a layup as time expired to give the sixth-ranked Chargers a 74-72 victory over Harding on Friday at the Rhodes Field House.

Harding (9-2) tied the game at 72-all on a three-pointer by Sam Brown and the buzzer sounded. The clock stops on a made basket with under a minute to go in each half, and the officiating crew put 0.9 seconds back on the clock.

It was just enough time for Campbell to catch the length-of-the-court pass on the in-bounds and lay it in for the game-winner.

The loss snapped a six-game winning streak for the Bisons and a nine-game home winning streak.

Brown was outstanding for the Bisons all night. He scored 16 of his career-high 23 points in the first half. Brown connected on 9-of-12 from the field and made five of Harding's eight three-pointers.

Harding took its first lead at the 17:37 mark of the first half. The Bisons held that lead until Campbell made the third of his three three-pointers in a three-minute span that gave Alabama-Huntsville (11-1) a 68-66 advantage with just under three minutes to go in the game.

Campbell led Alabama-Huntsville with 23 points. Jaime Smith added 18. That duo connected on six of UAH's seven three-pointers in the game.

Kevin Brown scored 13 points for Harding, and Kirk Porter added 12.

Harding will be back in action Saturday at the Rhodes Field House at 7:30 p.m. against North Alabama.
