NCAA Div. II Tournament 2012: Metro State Falls To Montevallo 67-65 In Elite Eight

The Metro State Roadrunners held a 60-52 lead over the Montevallo Falcons in the 2012 Division II Tournament with 4:49 remaining in the game, but a late 13-7 run by Antoine Davis and Montevallo to close the game doomed the Roadrunners in a disappointing 67-65 loss.

Mertro State got a game-high 20 points on 8-18 shooting from Reggie Evans and another 16 points from Demetrius Miller, but the team shot just 37.1 percent from the field. They pulled down a good portion of their misses (21 offensive rebounds), but remained careless with the ball (15 turnovers) and simply couldn't muster up enough offense to hold off Montevallo.

The Roadrunners ended their season with a 25-7 mark, while the Falcons bumped their record up to 28-7 with the win and will face Bellarmine Knights on Thursday in the Division II Semifinals.
