LAWTON, OK (Kiii Sports)- Looking to complete the season sweep of Cameron, the Texas A&M-Kingsville men's basketball team rallied from an 8-point deficit on the final 3:47 to pull within one with under 20 seconds left in 63-58 loss on Wednesday.

Trailing 59-51 with 3:47 left following a Tank Mayberry layin, Adonis Bailey began a 7-0 by hitting 1-of-2 free throws with 3:17 left. Following a pair of free throws by Irvin Hollinger with 2:37 left, Ta'Quan McDew came up with a steal. Bailey would convert a layin with 1:32 left to make it a 59-56. After Hollinger missed a pair of free throws that would have pulled Kingsville to with a point with 1:01 remaining, the Javelinas forced a team turnover to get the ball back.

McDew's three on the ensuing possession was off target with half a minute remaining. Ronald Scott pulled Kingsville to within a point at 59-58 with 16 seconds left. In order to get the ball back, the Javelinas fouled the Aggies three times in the next two seconds to send Cameron to the line.
