In the first of two Region 2 matchups with playoff implications, freshman Terrandus Smith's three-pointer broke a tie with 2.4 seconds left to give the Greyhounds an 82-79 victory over North Arkansas College in Harrison.
In a game that saw 11 lead changes and the score tied seven times, ASU Mid-South stretched a 39-39 halftime score into an eight-point lead with just under a minute remaining. But the Pioneers sandwiched consecutive three-point plays between three Greyhound turnovers to pull within two points, then saw an overthrown pass to the post find its way into the goal to tie the game with 15 seconds left to play.
After a Greyhound timeout, ASU Mid-South ran the clock down before freshman Terrandus Smith hit a three-pointer from the top of the key with 2.4 seconds left that sealed the win.
Smith led all scorers with 21 points to go with three assists and three steals, Trevor Banks finished with 13 points and six rebounds, Dee Montgomery had his first double-double of the season with 10 points and 10 assists. The Greyhound bench also came up big as Teverette Cain scored nine points and Chris Smith chipped in five points to go with a game-high 13 rebounds.
The Greyhounds travel to Bethel University for a Monday night matchup before returning to The Dog House Thursday as both teams host rival Northwest Mississippi Community College with the women tipping off the action at 5:30pm and the men scheduled to start at 7:30pm.
