*CG locator Ashland
Guilford vs. Randolph Macon Randy Mac head coach Mike Rhodes
:00 was playing the percentages last night
just like any good coach would when his
team was tied with Guilford at 88-all
with six-tenths of a second to play.

His guard Adam Krovic was at the
free throw looking to win it. He hit
the first and was then instructed to
intentionally miss the second.

He did.

But Jordan Snipes grabbed it and
fired it 92 feet like a
baseball...straight into the basket at
the buzzer.

Snipes already had 31 points in
the game, but his unlikely three
pointer gave Guilford a 91-to-89 win in
overtime.
