With 9:11 left in regulation, game is tied at 41. Karl Finley is going to the line for three. TU started very slowly, managing just six points in the game's first 11 minutes. But the Dragons have come back behind Finley (14 points), Travis Spahr (12 points). Brandon Harris has just fouled out with 8:32 left.
With 4:07 remaining, Travis Spahr ends up wide open under the basket, makes a layup and is fouled. He has 16 and one foul shot coming 54-52 Dragons.
With 1:00 left, Tiffin trails 60-58. Finley has a second free throw and hits. One-point game.
After a stop, Finley tries to drive, but turns the ball over with about 15 seconds left. Now Ashland is at the line for two with six on the clock.
Evan Yates splits a pair. 61-59. Six seconds left, timeout. Dragons have lost a lot of games like this the last three seasons.
Finley misses the first of two free throws with 1 second left. He needed both. Game over. 61-59
