Buffs hang tough late, win fourth straight

10:55 pm | November 23, 2013

An impressive season continued for Milligan College’s basketball team, with the Buffs’ fourth straight victory on Saturday night.

Milligan disposed of Point University 66-61 at Steve Lacy Fieldhouse in an Appalachian Athletic Conference game. The Buffs led by nine points in the second half, only to see the advantage trimmed to 59-58 with 3:40 remaining.

“That shows a lot about Coach (Alan) Wilson and the character of this team, is they were not going to go away,” Milligan coach Bill Robinson said. “Sometimes you win pretty, and sometimes you win ugly. Tonight was an ugly win, but we’ll take it.”
