BOSTON, Massachusetts — Nathan Knight's basket with 1.1 seconds remaining gave William & Mary a 66-64 win over Northeastern on Saturday.

The Tribe (11-5, 3-0 Colonial Athletic Association) led by 14 points with 8:17 to go before the Huskies (9-7, 3-1) rallied, tying the game on Shaquille Walters' three-point play with 13 seconds remaining.

Knight's winner came on a left-handed bank shot over a defender in the paint. A desperation shot by Tyson Walker from beyond halfcourt hit the back of the rim.

Knight finished with 23 points and 11 rebounds, his 12th double-double in 15 games to lead the nation. Andy Van Vliet added 15 points, Thornton Scott 11 points and five assists and Luke Loewe 10 points. The Tribe shot 55% but gave up 26 points off 17 turnovers.
