NASHVILLE — Thomas Douglas banked in a buzzer-beating three-pointer Monday night to lift Cumberland's men to a 63-61 win over Trevecca at Moore Gym.
After a couple of front-end misses of one-and-ones by Cumberland enabled Trevecca to cut into a five-point Bulldog lead, Matthew Elliott threw in a three to shoot the Trojans into a one-point edge with 5.3 seconds left.
Douglas took the inbounds pass and drove the length of the floor before scoring off the glass at the buzzer to boost the Bulldogs to 14-11 for the season and 6-8 in the TranSouth Conference.
Cumberland overcame a 27-24 halftime lead to move ahead for most of the second half. But a pair of front-end misses enabled Brian Oduor and Elliott to sink back-to-back triples to wipe out a 60-55 Bulldog lead in the final 23 seconds.
Trevecca jumped to a 15-5 lead before Cumberland chipped away at the margin.
Former Mt. Juliet High standout Josh Helton led Trevecca with 15 points a the Trojans slipped to 16-10, 9-5.
