Former Cedar Rapids Kennedy standout Kaylon Williams banked in a 35-footer as time expired as Evansville capped a late rally to beat the Drake Bulldogs 65-62 in Des Moines on Thursday afternoon. The Bulldogs appeared to be on control when they led 62-55 with just over three minutes remaining.
Drake coach Mark Phelps says it was a "very tough ending to a tough game," and he says his team did not make enough plays at the end of the game and took some questionable shots when they led by 7 points.
Williams’ shot capped off a 10-0 Evansville run to end the game. Phelps says when you give a team the opportunity to make a play with four seconds to go, you take your chances.
Drake falls to 5-5 in the Missouri Valley and 14-8 overall.
