Howard vs. Western Carolina recap: Bison lose in final seconds, 69-67

Jim Brown-US PRESSWIRE

The Bison committed a foul in the final seconds and dropped to 0-5 on the season with a 69-67 loss to Western Carolina.

The Howard Bison fell to 0-5 on Wednesday afternoon, narrowly losing to Western Carolina, 69-67. Simuel Frazier pulled the Bison even with less than 10 seconds to play, but quickly gave it away on the other end when he fouled Western Carolina's Tom Tankelewicz with one second remaining. Tankelewicz stepped to the line and cooly made both of his free-throws to ice the two-point win.

It was an unfortunate mistake by Frazier, who finished with a game-high 23 points. The sophomore from Norfolk was an impressive nine of 13 from the field, leading three Howard players in double figures. Tre Lee was two for four from behind the arc, and chipped in with 14 points while Prince Okoroh added 17 in a solid performance in the frontcourt. But WCU shot nearly 47 percent from the field, and drew the key foul in the waning seconds to pull off the win.

After a winless week at the Cancun Classic, the Bison now return home to Washington, DC to face Wilmington University.
