Eric Washington hit a 3 with 2:03 left to give Miami (8-14, 3-6 Mid-American) a 67-61 lead, but Baker answered with a 3-pointer of his own and, after an turnover by the Redhawks, Aaron Armstead hit a 3 to tie it with 54 seconds remaining.

Geovonie McKnight missed a jumper on the other end, setting up Baker’s game-winner.

The game featured 21 lead changes and 12 ties.
