This one qualifies as a heck of a finish. Coppin State guard Nendah Tarke took the inbounds pass and from three-quarters of the court away from the basket, he fired up a shot as time expired and drained it.

Tarke led the team with 22 points and this was the Eagles’ third win of the season. It was a back-and-forth affair in the closing seconds. Morgan State led by ten coming out of halftime, but the Eagles went on a 15-4 run to take the lead. In the final 53 seconds, the teams exchanged the lead four times including the buzzer-beater.

Coppin State improved to 3-14 with the win while Morgan State dropped to 6-8.
