Agnew's half-court shot wins it for North Alabama
FLORENCE, Ala. (AP) Christian Agnew hit a half-court shot as time ran out to give North Alabama a 63-62 victory over Stetson on Saturday.
After Stetson's Kenny Aninye missed two free throws with 5.7 seconds left, Agnew got the rebound before making a bank shot a few strides behind the half-court line. Until that shot, Agnew had just two points on 1-of-9 shooting, having missed his three previous 3-point attempts.
Kendarius Smith, who lost the ball out of bounds as he raced up court then gave up his fifth foul to send Aninye to the line, finished with 15 points for the Lions (7-13, 4-1 Atlantic Sun), who won their fourth straight. Freshman Emanuel Littles grabbed a career-best 18 rebounds and scored 11 points while Tavon King added 14 points and Kendall Stafford 10.
Marques Sumner scored 14 points and Aninye 10 for the Hatters (4-15, 0-4), who lost their fourth straight and are still looking for their first road win.
