PITTSBURGH --- Four Carlow University men's basketball players
scored in double digits, but it was not enough to eke out a win
over visiting Ohio Christian University Tuesday at Donahue
The Celtics (0-18, 0-6 RSC) lost a heartbreaker at the buzzer,
78-75, after hustling and battling the entire game.
The Celtics were down just 42-36 at halftime against the
Trailblazers (6-12, 3-3 RSC).
Freshman Tre' Harvey (Pittsburgh, Pa.) sunk a
three-pointer five minutes into the second half to give the Celtics
a 47-45 lead.
Carlow extended that lead to five points, but Ohio Christian
came back to tie the game 51-all with just under 13 minutes
remaining in the game.
Minutes later, Marcus Millien (SO/Orlando,
Fla.) tied the game, 53-all, off a steal by Swade
Redman (JR/Jeannette, Pa.).
Eugene Goodwine (FR/Pittsburgh, Pa.) made one
of two free throws, and another steal by Redman led to a fast break
for Jenkins Kimber (JR/Philadelphia, Pa.), giving
Carlow a 56-53 lead.
A breakaway steal by Ed
Cahoe (SO/Philadelphia, Pa.) put Carlow up, 61-60,
with seven minutes remaining.
Carlow maintained a narrow, 65-64, lead with just under five
minutes remaining in the game before the Trailblazers made a few
buckets and took advantage of time at the foul line to regain the

Carlow within two points with 29 seconds left on the clock. He

three-pointer to put Carlow within one point of Ohio Christian with
18 seconds on the clock.
Carlow was forced to foul to regain possession, and the
Trailblazers converted at the line. It came down to a
buzzer-beater, but the shot did not fall.
The Trailblazers out-rebounded Carlow, 52-34, and scored 40
points in the paint. The Celtics shot better from the field, but
shot just 38.5 percent from the free throw line to Ohio Christian's

21 points on the night. Harvey added four
three-pointers and 20 points, and Kimber and
