Smith Hits Game Winner for Armor

New, comments

Looks like the Armor are emulating their parent club in at least one regard. Jerry Smith beat two defenders and buried the game-winning shot as time expired Friday to propel the Armor to a 98-96 victory over the Iowa Energy before a crowd of nearly 4,000 in Springfield. The game put the Armor within a half game of Iowa in the D-League East

In a game that featured 18 lead changes and 11 ties, Iowa turned the ball over with 3.9 seconds to play. On the next possession, Smith took an inbounds pass, shook a pair of defenders and scored the game winner. The 6'2" Smith who's playing the best ball of anyone in the D-League, finished with a game high 28 points and team-highs in rebounds (7), assists (5) and steals (5). Dennis Horner added 19.
