Tigers Fall in Heart-breaker to NWU

Doane suffered yet another heart-breaking loss, falling to Nebraska Wesleyan 69-68 in overtime on Wednesday evening in Lincoln.  The loss drops the Tigers' record to 7-11 overall.

Doane led late in regulation but back-to-back three-point baskets by NWU's Jake Spurgeoun sent the game into overtime.  In the extra stanza, Spurgeoun once again threw a dagger in the hearts of the Tiger faithful in attendance as he hit a three-point basket with 0.1 seconds remaining in the game.

The Tigers were led on the evening by Jake Johnson's 23 points as he was 6-of-10 from the floor shooting.  Brett McFarland added 12 points for the Tigers.

Doane was impressive at the free throw line, hitting 29-of-32 free three attempts.

Dylan Aylward led NWU with 19 points.  Ryan Thramer added 13 and Spurgeoun finished with 12.
