American U Basketball: Eagles Welcome Howard to Bender

It’s been a little over a week since a tough 79-76 loss to St. Francis (PA). Late in the second half, each team grabbed the lead as it was back and forth. With the Eagles up one, Connor Nelson fouled three-point shooter Keith Braxton with three seconds left. Braxton made the first two but missed the third. The Red Flash’s, Tyler Stewart grabbed the rebound and put it back in as time expired.

The Eagles were led by Jamir Harris’ career-high 21 points.
