Miami hits 3-pointer at buzzer to beat Wright State

Isaiah Coleman-Lands hit a 3-pointer as time expired to give Miami a 65-62 win at Wright State on Wednesday.

He had hit only one other basket in the game, a 3-pointer in the first half, and didn’t play in the team’s first seven games because of a stress fracture in his leg.

His clutch bucket erased one by the Raiders’ Bill Wampler, who hit a 3-pointer with 6.3 seconds left for a 62-62 tie.

Bam Bowman matched his season high with 18 points for the RedHawks (5-4), who trailed by four with 4:33 to go. They outscored the Raiders (4-5), 9-2, over the next 2:31 and took a a 60-57 lead when Nike Sibande made one of two free throws.

Cole Gentry made two foul shots to cut it to one with 1:51 left. After a Sibande miss, the Raiders had two shots on their next possession but couldn’t convert.

The RedHawks, who out-rebounded the Raiders 38-28, then had three shots on their possession. Darrian Ringo drove and missed, and after a scrum for the loose ball, he grabbed it and scored while being fouled with 19 seconds left. He missed the free throw, setting up Wampler’s tying trey.

But the RedHawks went the length of the floor and made one pass to Coleman-Lands, who swished his shot from 27 feet.

Skyelar Potter missed practice leading up to the Miami game because of the death of his stepmother, but he came off the bench to score a career-high 17 points. Wampler also had 17 for the Raiders, who looked to be in control after trailing by as many as 11 in the second half.
