Rowell hits corner 3, Cal Baptist hangs for 77-75 win

The Associated Press

CHICAGO (AP) -- Jordan Heading scored 26 points, Ty Rowell drained a wide-open 3-pointer in the final seconds and California Baptist edged Chicago State 77-75 on Saturday, the school's first road victory in Division I.

Trailing 75-74 with the clock under 20 seconds, Milan Acquaah took the ball the length of the court and found Rowell unguarded in the left corner. Rowell dropped his fourth 3-pointer for the lead with 11.1 seconds remaining.

On the game's final possession, Chicago State's Rob Shaw broke from behind a screen to get the ball on the right wing, but his 3-pointer, launched with 2.8 seconds on the clock, hit off the back of the rim and a mob of players from both teams battled for the rebound as time expired.
