Thomas' Tip-In Gives Sheldon 71-70 Win

Kyi Thomas' tip-in of a Armani Hampton shot at the buzzer gave Sheldon an exciting 71-70 home win over Delta River League rival Jesuit Friday night. In the video below, watch the final 2:35 of the game.

Thomas led Sheldon with 17 points, 11 of those in the fourth quarter. The Huskies trailed 65-58 with 3:38 remaining and battled back scoring 11 in a row before Brian Glodowski tipped in a missed shot with :25.2 left. After Sheldon's Dakarai Allen was called for holding the ball five seconds on an inbounds play, Bryce Pressley hit a three-pointer from the left corner to give Jesuit the lead back with :10.2 remaining.

Hampton, with no time outs left for the Huskies, quickly moved the ball up court, drove down the right side of the paint. His shot hit the back of the rim and bounced out where Thomas was underneath for the tip-in.

D'Erryl Williams added 13 points and Ryan Manning had 12 points. Hampton scored 11 for Sheldon.

Jesuit's Pressley led all scorers with 22 points. The Huskies are now 6-1 in the DRL and in first place by itself.
