Concordia Drops Benedictine at the Buzzer
Orr was fouled driving the lane as time ran down in the fourth, and drained both attempts from the line to make it a 59-54 game. Then Morgan Jahnke had a takeaway at midcourt and found Courtney Lofink with a perfect feed for a layup to close the gap to three. Angelik Young scored on the ensuing trip, to cut it to a one point game.
The Cougars took an in-bound pass in the front-court with five seconds on the clock. The pass came into a crowd directly behind the free-throw line and was loose for a few seconds before Orr picked it up. Orr let it fly from just behind the arc draining the shot just beyond the Cougar bench as the backboard lit ending play.
