Men’s Basketball: UW-Whitewater defeats Williams 75-73, wins second title in three years

March 25, 2014

  March 25, 2014 By Justin St. Peter Salem, Va. – Not one, not two, not three, but the UW-Whitewater men’s basketball team now has four national championships. 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. Evans quickly turned and fired the inbounds pass to guard Quardell Young. Young caught it at the three point line and raced down the court. Four dribbles later, he elevated from the middle of the lane. As the ball left his dominant left hand, Mayer, the Ephs’ First Team All-American, hacked him across the arm. The ball hit the left side of the rim, bounced off the back iron, and dropped in. As the crowd erupted, the referee blew the whistle fo...
