Buena Vista held a 51-41 lead with under 13 minutes to play, but Loras came all the way back and held off the Beavers 71-70 last Saturday at Siebens Fieldhouse.

The Duhawks trailed 60-53 with 7:08 to play and still trailed by five with under 5 minutes to go.  They hit consecutive threes to help spark a 10-2 run, which had them in front 69-66 with 1:27 remaining.

Sean Morgan’s layup made it 69-68 with just over a minute left on the clock.  BVU came up with a big stop at the defensive end, but would turn it over on the ensuing possession with 15 seconds left.
