CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) -Keegan Bell hit a 3-pointer in the game's final second, sending Chattanooga to a 56-54 win over The Citadel on Thursday night.
The Mocs led The Citadel for the entire game until the Bulldogs put together a 5-0 run during a 2-minute span, taking a 54-53 lead on Cameron Wells' layup with 1:01 left. Wells also went 2-for-2 from the free throw line during the spree.
But, after Zach Urbanus missed a 3-pointer to extend The Citadel's lead, Wells missed a layup with 3 seconds left that would have sealed it for The Citadel. Chattanooga then came out of a timeout, got Bell the ball and he nailed his shot for the win.
Bell and Ricky Taylor scored 11 points apiece to lead the Mocs (11-6, 3-1 Southern Conference), who increased their season-high winning streak to six games.
Wells finished with 28 points, six rebounds, three steals and a block to lead The Citadel (8-9, 2-3).
