Timmer’s 4-point play at buzzer lifts Drake
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) — Reed Timmer completed a 4-point play with 1.8 seconds left in the game to cap a 20-point outing in Drake’s 67-63 win over Missouri State on Sunday.
Graham Woodward was left open in the corner for a 3-pointer to give Drake a 63-62 lead with 13.8 to go. After Alize Johnson made 1 of 2 free throws, Timmer lost control of it on a dribble through his legs, but regained it and launched a deep 3-pointer just before the buzzer.
Nick McGlynn and De’Antae McMurray each added nine points for Drake (16-13, 10-6 Missouri Valley Conference).
McMurray made an off-balance jumper at the buzzer to close the first half with a 35-25 lead.
Alize Johnson had 14 points and 16 rebounds and J.T. Miller added 14 points for Missouri State (17-12, 7-9).
Most of MSU’s bench was removed in the second half after going onto the court to help Dixon up after a hard foul.
