When Williams University senior center Michael Mayer tipped in a Duncan Robinson missed jumper with 4.9 seconds left on the clock, things looked dire for the Warhawks who were down 73-72. “I thought we had won a national championship,” Robinson said. “My first thought wasn’t to get back on defense.” ’Hawks forward K.J.
