Milton Stanley was steaming when he came to the bench after a tying basket from North Carolina Wesleyan with four seconds left sent the game to overtime.

The Maryville College senior had missed the first of two free throws with 15 seconds remaining.The Bishops no longer needed a 3 to tie.

In the extra session, Stanley atoned for that miss in a big way. A runner in the lane – both free throws this time – and a pair of assists sparked the Scots to an important, 93-82 win over the Bishops on Sunday at Boydson Baird Gymnasium.
