Johnson’s foul shots give Buffalo a win over Missouri State

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) – Antwain Johnson hit a pair of foul shots with 5.7
seconds left to lift Buffalo to a 75-74 win over Missouri State to take fifth
place at the Charleston Classic on Sunday.

Davonta Jordan led the Bulls (4-2) with 25 points. Buffalo had a 13-point lead
late in the first half and were still ahead 56-47 with nine minutes left, but
had to hold off the Bears (3-4) down the stretch. The lead changed hands eight
times in the final four minutes.

Gaige Prim’s basket with 46 seconds left gave Missouri State it’s last lead at
74-73. After the Bears’ Keandre Cook missed a foul shot with 12 seconds to go,
Johnson drove right toward the basket and was fouled. He calmly made both to
give Buffalo two wins in three tournament games.

Prim led Missouri State with 21 points.
