Robb grabbed the board, and drove up the court before pulling up just before half court with a last-ditch shot, sealing the comeback victory for EKU. 

The Colonels only led twice during the game with both advantages coming early in the first half. The Panthers led 43-28 at halftime, but EKU rallied in the second half with a 34-18 run on their way to the last-second win.
