When Frantz Massenat's three-pointer hit the rim in the waning seconds, the Drexel Dragons could only shrug. They had already seen 12 others just like it on Sunday afternoon.
Drexel couldn't buy a clutch bucket - or a three-pointer - as the Dragons fell to Buffalo, 55-52, at the Daskalakis Athletic Center.
Drexel shot just 1 for 14 from three-point range in the game and 0 for 7 in the second half. Coach Bruiser Flint wasn't upset with the shot selection, though.
"It's not like we were forcing three-point shots," he said. "We just didn't make any of them."
One more three-pointer may have been enough. After a missed free throw by Buffalo's Jarod Oldham with nine seconds left, the Dragons sped upcourt with the ball, down by two. Massenat missed a three-pointer with three seconds to go that could have given the Dragons a one-point edge. Buffalo's Josh Freelove rebounded the ball and made a free throw with less than a second remaining to ice the game.
