Columbia College recovered from second-half collapse and 12-point deficit to defeat Harris-Stowe State University 56-54 on Thursday in St. Louis.

After a Hornets steal and score with less than a minute left, Jordan Dressler scored to  bring the Cougars to within one point. Henrique Medeiros then stole an inbound pass and was fouled as he scored the winning lay in, giving the Cougars a 56-54 lead the Hornets could not get back in the final 3.9 seconds.

Freshman Wendell Crowder's driving lay-up highlighted the Cougars' comeback, bringing them back to within one after watching the Hornets turn a two-point halftime deficit into a 12-point second-half advantage.

The Cougars, ranked No. 19 in the latest NAIA Top 25 poll, improved to 24-4 overall and 11-2 in the American Midwest Conference with the win over the Hornets (11-18, 6-7). Columbia College next hosts William Woods University on Saturday.
