November 28, 2009
MILWAUKEE, WI- Clark Atlanta University’s David Brown hit a late three-pointer and sank two free throws with one second left to give the Panthers a 47-45 victory over Elizabeth City State in the 2009 Fresh Coast Classic Championship game.
The Vikings were held scoreless the last 3:19 of regulation after C.J. Wright converted 1 of 2 from the free throw line. After a basket by Johnathan Simpson pulled the Panthers within three (45-42) David Brown drilled a three-pointer with 17 seconds remaining to knot the game a 45 all. A Viking turnover gave CAU (3-1) the ball back with 5 ticks left. After a called time out to advance the ball, a questionable foul was whistled on Marquie Cooke with one second remaining sending Brown to the line where he went 2-3 to giving the Panthers come from behind win.
Trent Bivens was the only player in the low scoring affair to register double digits with a game high 12 points.
