CHARLOTTE. N.C. (WNCN)–  St. Augustine’s hit a late game three-pointer to seal a 97-94 win over Linclon(Pa.) University Tuesday night in the CIAA Men’s Basketball Tournament in Charlotte. 

Senior Craig McDaniel hit the three-pointer with only 1.3 seconds left in the game.  Lincoln (14-15) had just tied it up with a three of their own from Bernard Lightsey with six seconds left.  The Falcons (11-16) led by nine points with less than a minute left in the game before Lincoln stormed back. 

Jalen Gaddy scored a career-high 30 points for the Falcons, with Tyre Gathright adding 19 and Rashad George 17. 

Next up for St. Augustine’s, a battle with crosstown rival and Southern Division champion Shaw Wednesday night.
