Webb's clutch shot lifts Mount Mercy

Good thinks happen when RoyShawn Webb has the basketball in his hands  at the end of games. It happened again Tuesday night.

Webb made a strong move to the basket and scored with 2.7 seconds left  to give Mount Mercy a 68-66 victory over Viterbo in a non-conference  game at the Hennessey Recreation Center.

Nearly the same thing happened Monday when the Mustangs upset  16th-ranked St. Ambrose, 80-78, in another nail-biter. Webb drove to  the bucket in that game and missed, but Dennis McKinney scored on a  put-back in the final second for a happy ending.

"We ran the exact same play yesterday against St. Ambrose. It was  basically the same thing," said Webb, a strong left-hander who is hard  to keep away from the basket.

The defensive player from Viterbo tried to stop him from penetrating,  to no avail.

"I attacked him and finished the bucket," said Webb, "and we won the game."

McKinney lifts Mustangs by St. Ambrose

Dennis McKinney scored with one second left Monday night to snap a 68-68 tie and give the Mount Mercy Mustangs a 70-68 victory over St. Ambrose in a non-conference game at the Hennessey Recreation Center.

RoyShawn Webb tallied for Mount Mercy with 1:13 remaining to tie the game at 68-68. Neither team scored for more than 70 seconds until McKinney scored in the paint for the victory.

The Mustangs (6-6) earned a split with the Bees (10-4) for the season series. St. Ambrose topped Mount Mercy, 80-65, in Davenport on Nov. 13.

McKinney and Bailey Basala scored 19 points apiece for the Mustangs. McKinney also grabbed eight rebounds and had two steals. Basala, who has struggled with his 3-point shooting this season, nailed five triples and also had five assists and four rebounds.
