Seth Curry made a jump shot at the buzzer to give the Erie BayHawks a 95-93 win over the visiting Maine Red Claws in a D-League game Wednesday night.

Curry dodged two leaping defenders in the left corner before dribbling a few steps and sinking the field goal from about 10 feet for his game-high 19th point.

Tim Frazier made a jump shot with 16.9 seconds left to give Maine a 92-91 lead.

Joe Crawford followed with two free throws for a 93-92 Erie lead before Maine’s Jason Calliste was fouled on a play away from the ball before the ensuing inbounds pass.

Calliste made the free throw to tie it at 93, and the Red Claws had the ball with 12.5 seconds left. Frazier made a driving layup with 2.7 seconds left but was called for traveling.

Frazier and Christian Watford each had 17 points to lead seven Maine players in double digits.



ARMSTRONG CRITICIZED: Greg LeMond, a U.S. cycling great, rejected calls for Lance Armstrong’s life ban to be reduced, saying “if there’s anybody who deserves a ban, it’s this guy.”

LeMond said Armstrong was punished not just for doping but for the way he treated people who accused him before he finally admitted his guilt. “I believe everyone deserves a second chance but it’s not like he was positive one time and admitted it and said he’s sorry. This is a repeated coverup … there’s nothing like it in the history of cycling.”
