HOUSTON -- Martaveous McKnight scored five points in the final three seconds to give Arkansas-Pine Bluff a 74-72 win over Texas Southern on Monday night.
The Golden Lions (7-14, 7-0 Southwestern Athletic Conference) remained alone atop the SWAC standings and ended Texas Southern's 27-game home winning streak, the second longest in the nation.
McKnight hit a step-back 3 to tie it 72-all with 2.8 seconds to go and was fouled on the shot. Texas Southern head coach Mike Davis was charged with a technical foul after the play and McKnight made 1 of 2 of the technical foul shots. He then sank his bonus foul shot to complete the 5-point possession. Lamont Walker missed a 3-point attempt for Texas Southern at the buzzer.
Texas Southern was without its leading scorer Demontrae Jefferson (23.2 points per game), who was suspended indefinitely for a violation of time rules.
