March 5th, 2009
Tyler Dierkers by Steve Kissel

OXFORD, Ohio - With Kent State leading Miami 56-54 with 4:21 left in the game, Miami's Tyler Dierkers had the ball just outside the lane. He jumped up and shot the ball, it left his hand, kissed the glass and went through the net.

The game was now tied at 56-56 and it was just another clutch shot that Dierkers makes during a typical game. Sunday night, Dierkers finished a double-double with a solid 10 points and 10 rebounds.
Miami won this game 68-63 behind Michael Bramos' 34 points and the contributions by Dierkers.
