St. Aug Falls To Lincoln (Pa.) On Three-Pointer As Time Expired

Posted January 12, 2013

— Saint Augustine’s University suffered a gut-wrenching defeat inside Emery Gymnasium on Saturday, Jan. 12, 2013.

Senior forward Tyquan Stroman (Poughkeepsie, N.Y.) and senior guard Percy Woods (Washington, D.C.) both scored 12 points apiece for Saint Augustine's University, but Kenny Sharpe hit a three-pointer as time expired to give Lincoln (Pa.) University a 59-58 CIAA men's basketball victory.

The Falcons led 58-56 with six seconds left on a driving layup by Woods. After a timeout, Sharpe, who scored a game-high 22 points, split a double team and swished a double-pump three pointer to hand the Falcons their second straight loss. The Falcons are now 9-6 overall and 2-3 in the CIAA. The Lions are 9-5 overall and 2-3 in the CIAA.

Sharpe lost the ball momentarily in midair, but re-grasped it before making the game-winning shot from beyond the three-point line, much to the chagrin of the Falcon fans in Emery Gymnasium.

“We did a good job of getting in position to win the game,” St. Aug Head Coach Lonnie Blow, Jr. said. “We just didn’t finish the deal. The guy made a tough shot. I thought the defense on him was decent.”
Sharpe’s basket capped a tight contest between both teams. Neither team led by more than five points as the lead changed hands 11 times. The score was tied eight times.

The Falcons gained their largest lead in the second half at 44-40 when sophomore center Jonathan Crawley (Richmond, Va.) scored on a layup with 12:53 to go. The Lions quickly regained the lead at 46-44 on a two three-pointers by Sharpe. Late in the second half, Sharpe drained two free throws for a 54-51 lead with 2:43 remaining.

Senior guard Nick Chamblee (Hampton, Va.) of the Falcons nailed a wide-open three from the corner to tie the game. The Falcons gained a 56-54 lead on a short jumper by Stroman in which the ball bounced around the rim several times before falling in. Sharpe tied the contest on two free throws with 16 seconds left which set the stage for the final finish.

Dribbling at the top of the key, Woods found a crease and drove to the basket for a layup to give the Falcons a two-point lead with six seconds remaining. After a timeout, Sharpe caught the ball near midcourt with 2.9 seconds left. He was immediately trapped by two Falcon defenders, but somehow slipped between them to get a clean look at the basket. Though he lost control of the ball momentarily, Sharpe somehow regained it and launched a three-pointer before the horn sounded which was good.
Woods scored eight points and Stroman added six points in the first half for the Falcons, who fell behind 23-18. They came back to take the lead at 29-28 on two free throws by junior guard Joel Kindred (Raleigh, N.C.). After the Lions scored, Woods made a jumper with six seconds left to give the Falcons a 31-30 halftime lead.

The Falcons will attempt to regroup from their two-game losing streak on Monday, Jan. 14, 2012, against Virginia Union University at home. Game time is 7:30 p.m.

The contest against Virginia Union will be televised locally by campus station WAUG-TV on Time Warner Cable 168. Fans can also follow the game via live stats on www.saintaugfalcons.com<http://www.saintaugfalcons.com/>.
