URI basketball | Last-second second shot doesn't drop as Davidson escapes, 60-59

February 25, 2015

KINGSTON— Sometimes, basketball isn't about strategy and sets. 

Sometimes, basketball is just about one team making a shot and one team missing a last-second shot.

Trailing by two points late in Wednesday's Atlantic-10 showdown with Rhode Island, visiting Davidson grabbed the lead with an outrageous step-back corner 3-pointer from Jack Gibbs. Moments later, URI freshman Jared Terrell missed a wide-open 3-pointer from the left wing right in front of the URI bench and the Wildcats escaped the Ryan Center with a 60-59 road victory.
