With 12.2 seconds left, Davion Pearson, a junior guard for Nebraska Kearney, hit a three-pointer to defeat the Emporia State basketball team 66-65 in last Saturday’s game.

A 12-3 run in the first half found the Hornets up, 40-27, at the break. The Lopers took quick control of the second half going on a 6-0 lead. With seven minutes remaining, the Lopers pulled within a point of the Hornets. The Hornets recovered and had a 65-60 lead with a minute and half left in the game.

After Pearson’s three, the Hornets managed to get the ball down the court where Jay Tamaat, freshman guard, missed a three and Paul Bunch, senior center could not get the tip in to fall.

Kelab Wright, senior guard, led the Hornets with 16 points, eight rebounds and five assists. Bunch ended the night with 11 points and seven rebounds.

ESU traveled to Topeka last night where they fell to Washburn Univeristy 79-74 moving them to 14-8 overall and 7-5 MIAA.
