ATLANTA (AP) - Drury is the Division II national champion.
Alex Hall made two free throws with 22 seconds left to complete a long, methodical rally from a 17-point hole and help Drury beat Metro State 74-73 on Sunday in the NCAA tournament final.
Metro State had a chance to win the game, but Mitch McCarron and Brandon Jefferson both missed shots underneath the rim in the closing seconds, and the buzzer sounded and confetti started to fly as Drury ran to center court and began to celebrate its national title.
The Panthers overcame 19 turnovers to win the championship.
``What an unbelievable championship game,'' said NCAA President Mark Emmert, who awarded the trophy to the school from Springfield, Mo.
