WILMINGTON, N.C. -- Tim Rusthoven hit the second of two potential game-winning free throws and William & Mary completed a season sweep of UNC Wilmington 73-72 Wednesday night.
The Tribe (13-15, 7-10 Colonial Athletic Association) led 72-66 late, but the Seahawks (10-19, 5-12) got 3-pointers from Keith Rendleman with 9 seconds left and Tanner Milson with 1.6 seconds remaining to tie it 72-72.
With 0.4 seconds showing, Rusthoven missed the first but made the second free throw. The Seahawks' ensuing half-court shot banged off the backboard, and likely came too late to have counted regardless.
Rendleman led UNC Wilmington with 24 points and 11 rebounds.
William & Mary won the teams' first contest 92-86.
