The Toppers trailed by eight points four different times, but with just over a minute remaining, Harrison-Docks knocked down a long range shot, giving the Toppers a two-point lead.
USA’s Mychal Ammons scored on a post move to tie the game at 56. WKU called a timeout with 29.2 seconds remaining and the ball in its possession with a chance to win.
Harrison-Docks took the ball with just over 10 seconds left, crossed from his left hand to his right, got into the paint and netted a flip shot giving the Toppers a two-point lead with just 3.7 ticks left.
USA’s turn around jumper fell short as the Toppers escaped Mobile, Al. with their first conference win of the year.
