timberland ladies boots sale Coppin able to escape in OT
Things didn’t look good for Coppin State last night when the Eagles’ leading scorer, sophomore Tywain McKee, walked onto the court for pre game warm ups with his hands buried in his pockets and Timberland boots, not sneakers, laced to his feet. McKee, and his 15.8 points per game, were stuck on the bench, suspended for violating team rules.
On any other night, that might have been too much to overcome, especially against North Carolina A which had already defeated Coppin State earlier this season. Instead, an unlikely star,
junior guard West Otis, stepped up in overtime and lifted the Eagles to an emotional 65 64 victory on homecoming in front of 1,469.
Otis who had been averaging just 1.4 points a game this season scored the Eagles’ only field goal in overtime, a jumper from the free throw line with 25.8 seconds left that gave Coppin State a one point lead. North Carolina A answered, reclaiming the lead on an acrobatic layup by Jason Willis with 10.6 seconds left, but once again, Otis rose to the occasion. He made two free throws with six seconds left, and those points proved to be the difference, as the Eagles (11 14, 11 3 Mid Eastern Athletic Conference) stayed two games behind conference leader Delaware State (15 11, 13 1).
