Conner missed a shot in the closing seconds as Cooper held on to edge the Cougars, 60-58 on Tuesday.

Trailing by three with 3.5 seconds remaining, Conner sophomore guard Michael Scott was fouled and made his first free throw. He intentionally missed the second attempt and grabbed his own rebound but was unable to sink the ensuing field goal attempt.

Freshman guard Sean McNeil scored 15 of his team-best 21 points in a first quarter that saw the Jaguars jump out to a 14-point lead.

Cougars senior forward Samuel Hemmerich led all scorers with 29 points.
