DETROIT -- Alonde LeGrand scored the go-ahead basket with .4 seconds remaining and Detroit-Mercy defeated Illinois-Chicago 70-69 on Saturday.
After UIC's Godwin Boahen missed the front end of a one-and-one with 11.8 seconds left, Detroit's Antoine Davis brought the ball upcourt, tightly defended by Boahen. Davis passed to LeGrand, who took the ball at the left wing, dribbled once to get around a defender and hit the jumper as Jacob Wiley contested the shot.
After a timeout and video review, UIC inbounded with .4 seconds left and Davis stole the three-quarters court pass near the top of the circle.
Chris Brandon had 15 points, eight rebounds and three blocks and Marquis Moore had 16 points and seven rebounds for Detroit (6-16, 4-5 Horizon League). Davis, who at 23.8 points per game is the third-leading scorer in the nation, scored 13 points on 5 of 15 shooting. Justin Miller had 11 points.
There was one tie and one lead change prior to LeGrand's winning shot. They occurred near the middle of a 25-6 UIC run to overcame a nine-point halftime deficit and take a 52-42 lead with 11:20 remaining.
