Raushaun Amos connected on two 3 points shots on Thursday evening and Jalen Wadlington nailed one 3 pointer, but the three combined were all in dramatic fashion and helped lead the Archers to a 75-73 victory on the road at Three Rivers College. With the Archers down 63-60, Amos connected on his first three pointer with 6.2 seconds remaining to tie the game and force overtime, as the Raiders could not connect on a last second three pointer. Once again, the Archers found themselves down late in overtime, 71-69, when Amos connected from long range to give the Archers a 72-71 lead with 13.6 seconds remaining. Three Rivers drove the length of the court and got an easy layup to regain the lead at 73-72 with 6 seconds to play. Wadlington took the inbounds pass and dribbled up the court and found nothing but the bottom of the net with 0.2 seconds remaining to give the Archers the 75-73 victory and ignited a celebration in the center of the court.
