The Wagner Seahawks are advancing from the NCAA tournament’s First Four after a finish that won’t soon be forgotten by any member of the Howard Bison.

Howard, having mounted an impressive comeback from a 13-point deficit, needed just one 3-pointer to tie the game in its final seconds. The team missed three consecutive 3-point attempts before the buzzer in the 71-68 loss.

It was the first NCAA tournament win in Wagner’s history, and they’ll be rewarded with a matchup against the No. 1 North Carolina Tar Heels in the first round on Thursday.
