David Douglas guard John Morris’ steal and free throw in the final seconds turned away upset-minded Barlow 58-54 on Tuesday night.

The Bruins were looking to tie the game as they trailed 57-54 with 16 ticks left. They inbounded to Dominik Copper who could not get the ball up the floor as quickly as he would’ve liked in the face of the Scots' heavy defensive pressure. Copper finally got past center court and to the top of the key, then cut to the left in hopes of finding an open 3-pointer. With five seconds remaining, Copper glanced up at the clock to see how much time he had to pull the trigger on a possible tying shot. That's when Morris made his move.

In that split second, Morris reached in and deflected the ball away, scooped it up and dashed to the other end where he was fouled with one second to go. Morris connected on his first free throw to clinch the win for the Scots.
