Two games left, two wins?

The loss to Akron was quickly overshadowed by Miami’s recent win against Kent State Saturday afternoon. The Golden Flashes, who sit fourth overall in the Mid-American Conference (MAC), are seeded significantly higher than Miami. Regardless, the RedHawks kept their composure. A three-point buzzer-beater by sophomore guard Peyton Scott secured the 61-58 win on Senior Day. Scott’s buzzer-beater was No. 5 on SportsCenter’s Top 10 Plays the next morning.
