Eagles end losing skid with three-point shot

Point guard Luke Moyer propelled the Golden Eagles to victory in their last regular season game on Saturday night with a game-winning shot.

With 25 seconds left in the game, the Golden Eagles held a slim two-point lead against the University of Science and Arts Oklahoma Drovers. The lead was diminished when Drovers guard Taran Buie swatted the ball away from Golden Eagles forward Griffin Brady and drove down the court for a two-point layup. The game was then knotted at 89 points apiece with 10.4 seconds left on the clock.

The Golden Eagles responded quickly with Moyer moving down the court and taking advantage of a screen by forward Nate Anderson. Then, in his last regular season game of college basketball, Moyer broke the tie by sinking a three-point shot with 2.1 seconds on the clock. The shot was followed by three timeouts between the two teams and then a Golden Eagle victory by a score of 92-89.

The game served to end the Golden Eagles’ eight-game losing skid and the team’s regular season.

“It was a great way to end my college basketball career,” Moyer said. “I’ll always remember and cherish that moment for as long as I live.”
