EDINBURG, Texas (AP) Shaquille Boga scored 26 points, including the winning bucket just ahead of the buzzer, to lift Texas-Pan American to a 53-51 win over Missouri-Kansas City on Saturday.
Boga, who finished 11 of 21 from the field, hit a 3-pointer to tie the game at 51 with 1:14 left, then got the rebound after Deshon Taylor’s missed shot at the other end and sank the winning jumper with just 3 seconds to go. He also had five rebounds.
Janari Joesaar contributed 10 points and Shaquille Hines added eight while hauling in 11 rebounds for UTPA (10-20, 4-10 Western Athletic Conference), which trailed most of the game but never let the margin swell beyond six points. The win snapped a three-game skid.
Martez Harrison led Missouri-Kansas City (13-18, 8-6) with 16 points and Reese Holliday added 15 points.
