Monsters Win Come From Behind Thriller

With just over 10 seconds left and trailing by two, Dom Hunter connected from long range on what would be the game winning shot on a drive and kick from D'Juan Miller. That three gave EAC the lead 62-61 over Arizona Western after trailing by as many as 9 points late in the second half. Miller led the Monsters throughout the night and finished with 20 points and 7 assists.

A dunk and a huge block with under 2 minutes remaining by Jeremiah Harris allowed the Monsters to draw within 4. Miller then hit a jumper and followed that up with the game winning assist to Hunter to cap a great comeback. The Gila Monsters held AWC scoreless for the final 3 minutes of the game.

Hunter finished the game with 13 points, 9 rebounds, and 5 steals, and Taylor Stafford added 10 points and 6 rebounds.

The win improves EAC to 15-8 overall and 9-6 in ACCAC play. The Monsters take the court again in Thatcher this Saturday in a big conference match-up versus Glendale. Come out and support or follow along online!
