MARTIN, Tenn. -- Justin Childs' layup with 2 seconds left climaxed a 12-2 run in the final four minutes as Tennessee-Martin stunned Kennesaw State 65-63 Saturday night.
It came after Kennesaw State's Markeith Cummings, who led the Owls (1-7) with 19 points, committed a turnover with 6 seconds to play. Following a timeout, Childs (12 points) then scored the game-winner.
Before his last-second turnover, Cummings had given Kennesaw State its last lead, 63-61, on a layup with 0:55 left. But Taylor responded with a tying jumper with 42 seconds remaining before Cummings' turnover and Childs' decisive layup.
