UMass Dartmouth’s Buzzer-Beater Makes SportsCenter
By Matt Noonan (@MattNoonan11)
It’s been an exciting season for the UMass Dartmouth men’s basketball team.
Earlier this month, the Corsairs provided head coach Brian Baptiste with his 600th win by defeating Bridgewater State, 77-71.
Two days later, they handed Keene State it’s first Little East Conference (LEC) setback of the season – the Owls defeated the Corsairs in last year’s conference championship game en route to the NCAA Tournament. The game also featured senior Jon Robinson netting a career-high 23 points, too.
10 days after their impressive win over Keene State – last night, to be exact – UMass Dartmouth scored a dramatic 72-70 win over MIT, which featured a buzzer-beating three-pointer from Chris Mendes.
ESPN’s SportsCenter featured the game-winning trifecta – HOP HERE to watch (and hear the game-winning call by John Cabral).
