    CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. -- Stephen McDowell hit a go-ahead 3-pointer and two late free throws to lift Chattanooga to a 67-62 win over Samford on Saturday night.

    Samford led by eight points at halftime, but Chattanooga opened the second with a 10-2 run that was sparked by two 3-pointers by McDowell, who finished with 16 points. Both teams traded leads the rest of the way as Samford pulled ahead 62-61 on Matthew Friday's layup with just under four minutes to play.

    But those were the last points for Samford, as McDowell hit a 3-pointer with 3:31 left on Chattanooga's next possession and the Mocs defense held the Bulldogs scoreless for the final 3:59.

    McDowell hit two foul shots with 2 seconds left to seal the win.

    Nicchaeus Doaks led the Mocs (15-13, 11-6 Southern Conference) with 20 points.

    Bryan Friday paced the Bulldogs (13-14, 8-10) with 16 points.
