Roundball Roundup: Plymouth hangs on to beat Northwood

The Northern Lakes Conference opened up league play with a bang.

Northwood's Aaron McDowell missed a 3-pointer at the buzzer as Plymouth held on to beat the Panthers 44-41 at the Panther Pit.

Northwood had erased an 11-point halftime deficit and took the lead in the 4th when Skylar Titus went behind his own back on a dribble then nailed a running J. That put Northwood up 41-39.

But Randy Davis led Plymouth right back. He drove the lane, made a bucket and was fouled. Davis hit the free throw to put Plymouth back up 1.

With 12 seconds left, it appeared as if Northwood had regained the lead with a big basket, but the officials called a charge against the Panthers.

Plymouth was fouled and made two free throws to go up by 3 before McDowell missed a 3 to tie it.

Plymouth is now 5-1. Northwood drops to 2-3.
