KANSAS CITY, Mo. – (Box Score) (Video of buzzer-beater) Malcolm Mann nearly lost the basketball on his way to the cup as time ran out in the title game of the Buffalo Funds-NAIA Division I Men's Basketball National Championship Tuesday (March 22), but the junior gathered himself to hit the game-winner with under a second left to lift No. 4-seed Mid-America Christian (Okla.) to its first-ever NAIA national championship, 100-99 in overtime, over top seeded Georgetown (Ky.).
The Plano, Texas, native saw his shot bounce on the rim three times before dropping through and the Evangels took home the 79th annual red banner.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Georgetown College men's basketball took a shot, trailing for most of the first half Monday in the 2016 Buffalo Funds-NAIA Division I Men's Basketball National Championship semifinals. However, out of the locker room they stormed once again. The No. 1 Tigers (32-3) went on a 14-4 blitz behind great defensive pressure. MidAmerica Nazarene University (28-9) did not go away, but could never fully recover in a 90-83 setback. This marks the sixth time overall for Georgetown in the finals and second in four years under coach Chris Briggs.
"We are excited to be back in the finals," Briggs said. "We have one guy who has been through this before. The guys have to work hard, prepare and focus."
