Lake’s clutch last-second shot lifts Colonels over Parkside
SALISBURY, Md. – Cameron Lake connected on a 3-pointer that proved to be the difference in Colonel Richardson’s 64-63 win at Parkside Tuesday night.
Colonel built a lead early, and led by double-digits midway into the fourth.
Parkside began to mount a comeback, led by Marcus Yarns’ 10 fourth quarter points.
It was Yarns who put the Rams ahead with under a minute remaining in the game. The Colonels had an answer.
Diante Dickerson was forced to give the ball off to Lake with 10 seconds remaining. Lake then hit a corner 3 with 8 seconds remaining, leaving his arm up as a sense of shock fell over the crowd.
Yarns would be fouled and sent to the line, but missed the second of two free throws, allowing the Colonels to run out the clock.
Yarns finished with 26 points, Dickerson led Colonel with 25.
