Jackson’s 17 leads Omaha past Drake for first win

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Zach Jackson scored 17 points including 1-of-2 free throws with two seconds left and Omaha got its first win of the season, beating Drake 75-73 on Wednesday night.

Reed Timmer’s 3-pointer with three seconds left brought Drake within 74-73 and Timmer immediately fouled Jackson to send him to the line. KJ Robinson’s layup with 13 seconds to go gave Omaha (1-7) the lead 74-70.

Daniel Norl made back-to-back 3-pointers with 9:51 left to put the Mavericks on top the rest of the way.

Jackson shot 7-for-10 from the field and Norl scored 16, missing just one of his five 3-point attempts. The Mavericks were 29-of-58 shooting including 10-of-25 from 3-point range.

Gram Woodward and Nick McGlynn each scored 13 to lead Drake (4-2), Timmer had 12, Ore Arogundade had 11 and De’Antae McMurray 10.
