March 1, 2020 GMT

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (AP) — Patrick Good scored a season-high 26 points including a 3-pointer with 7.5 seconds left to boost East Tennessee State to a 68-67 win over Western Carolina on Saturday with the Buccaneers winning the outright Southern Conference title in their regular-season finale.

The victory was the 27th for ETSU (27-4, 16-2), the most regular-season wins in program history, passing the 26 won by the 1952-53 Buccaneers.

Good answered a 3-pointer by the Catamounts’ Travion McCray that came with 12 seconds remaining. Isaiah Tisdale blocked a shot by McCray in the final second. ETSU players then raced around the court before piling on top of each other in celebration.

Tyler Dotson scored 18 points, McCray 15 on five 3-pointers and Onno Steger 13 for the Catamounts (18-11, 10-8), who shot 52.5%.
