Willie Reed buzzer beater wins final home game for Springfield

Springfield Armor

Willie Reed didn't have a typical Willie Reed game on Wednesday or at least as typical as his recent play. He scored 13 points on 6-of-11 shooting, grabbed only five boards and didn't block a shot ... but he did win the game.

Reed, a candidate to be called up to the Nets next week, hit a high-arching 15-footer with .06 left on the clock, giving the Armor a 110-108 win over the Canton Charge in the Armor's last home game this season. The 6-foot-10 Reed (he syas 6'11") caught an inbounds pass from Ben Uzoh and knocked down the shot.

"Willie made a great play to catch the ball and put it on the numbers, and he finished it for us," Armor coach Bob MacKinnon said. "I thought it was a good effort all around, a good team effort."

"Ben had told me he was going to look for me, so he trusted in me and passed to me, and I came through with the shot," Reed said.

Dominique Jones led the Armor with 24 points, five rebounds and six assists. Seven Armor players finished in double figures.

The Armor will finish the 2012-13 regular season with five games on the road, beginning with a matchup on Friday night with the Erie BayHawks at 7:00 pm ET at Erie Insurance Arena.
