SHERIDAN — A missed last-second 3-pointer left Sheridan College at a 59-57 loss Wednesday night in Casper.
Casper’s Kendell Nunn hit a shot with six seconds left to put the home team up by two, and Sierra Toms missed the 3 out of the drawn up play.
“I was pleased with how we battle back to get in the game and had a chance to win at the end,” head coach Frank McCarthy said. “I thought we really played hard just came up a little short.”
