Late 3-pointer waved off in tight Milligan loss


The crowd at Steve Lacy Fieldhouse on Saturday evening rode an emotional roller-coaster for the last 5.2 seconds of the Appalachian Athletic Conference contest between Milligan College and Reinhardt University.

Milligan senior post Morgan McLeod banked home a 3-pointer at the buzzer to tie the contest at 73-73….apparently. After a short huddle of the officials it was decided however, that McLeod’s buzzer-beater wasn’t, giving Reinhardt a 73-70 victory.

Not that it should have come down to that in a game that Milligan dominated until midway through the second half, when the Eagles made a run to close an 11-point deficit to a late lead.
