The Riverhawks hosted their second home game of a weather plagued schedule last night (February 24) in the Multipurpose Room of the College Activities Center.
After a first half that saw Hocking build an 11 point lead, the Riverhawks fought their way back to a 50 – 50 tie on the perimeter shooting of Shawyer and Alex Treadwell.
As the game came to a close the teams traded leads until Hocking took a 3 point advantage from a foul shot with just 18 seconds left to play. Despite being closely guarded Shawyer managed to bury a three, causing him to be mobbed by his team mates after the foul had been called and earning a roar of approval from the crowd.
The Riverhawks play next in Wheeling, WV on February 27 in the rescheduled Mason Dixon Tournament against West Virginia Northern and Eastern Gateway.
