Rose-Hulman's Jimmy Miller hits two free throws to lift Engineers in final seconds

DEFIANCE, OHIO — Rose-Hulman sophomore Jimmy Miller buried two free throws with 4.4 seconds remaining and the Engineers defended the game’s final possession to earn a 58-57 men’s basketball victory at Defiance College on Saturday.

Defiance led 57-56 with 7.6 seconds remaining when senior Ryan Hicks was fouled and sent to the free throw line for a one-and-one opportunity. Hicks missed the front end of the one-and-one and Miller was fouled on the rebound attempt.

After a Yellow Jackets timeout, Miller swished both free throws to put Rose ahead 58-57. Defiance junior Travis Schomaeker missed an off-balance 22-foot shot from the right wing at the buzzer, as the Engineers improved to 10-3 overall and 5-1 in Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference play.

The victory marked Rose-Hulman’s seventh consecutive win and kept the Engineers in a tie for first place in the HCAC standings. Defiance remains in the top half of the league standings at 9-4 overall and 4-2 in conference play.

The Engineers took advantage of a 17-for-20 performance from the free-throw line and a 35-19 rebounding edge to earn the close decision.

Senior Julian Strickland led a balanced scoring attack for Rose with 11 points on 7 of 8 from the free-throw line. Senior Alec Houpt added eight points on 4 of 6 from the field.

Freshman Collin Wojcik added seven points off the bench on 5 of 5 from the foul line. Miller scored six points on 4-4 from the line, and sophomore Tyler Duffy also scored six points. A total of 10 Rose-Hulman players scored in the game.

Ryan Hicks led the Defiance offense with 19 points on 9 of 17 from the field. Bernard Edwards also scored 15 points on 6-9 for the Yellow Jackets. The contest featured a total of 12 ties and six lead changes, including two ties and five lead changes in the final three minutes.

Defiance jumped out to a 10-6 lead midway through the first before five points by freshman Wade Stallings and scores by Duffy and junior Michael Hallstein put Rose ahead 15-10.

The Yellow Jackets regained the lead at 19-17 before Rose-Hulman held Defiance to two points over five minutes to build a 24-21 edge. Two free throws by Wojcik and another Hallstein basket gave the Engineers a 30-26 lead at the break.

Rose twice built the lead up to nine points in the second half, including 40-31 at the 13:26 mark on two free throws by Wojcik. Defiance whittled away at the deficit before claiming the lead at 51-50 on a layup by Noah Reed at the 3:04 mark.

Strickland buried two free throws with 2:00 left to put Rose-Hulman ahead again at 55-54, but Defiance regained the lead at 57-54 with 18 seconds left on a jumper by Edwards and two free throws by Reed.

Senior Jordy Martin drove for a layup with 7.6 seconds remaining to bring Rose within 57-56. A foul on the subsequent in-bounds pass to Hicks set up the final game sequence.

Rose-Hulman will return to action at home against Franklin on Wednesday.
