Samford rallies from 10-down to beat Furman 75-73
The Paladins (16-5, 5-4) still looked to be in good shape with 21 seconds left when Matt Rafferty made two free throws after Sharkey was called for an intentional foul. Samford fouled again on the ensuing inbounds play, but Jordan Lyons missed the front end of one-and-one that would have made it a two-possession lead.
Samford grabbed the rebound off Lyons’ miss and scored on the run out to cut the deficit to one with 14 seconds left. Then, Lyons stepped out of bounds while receiving the inbounds pass, gifting Samford the opportunity for Allen’s winner. Furman did not get a final shot off.
The Paladins missed their final seven shots from the field.
