    The Colonels (10-6, 5-3 Ohio Valley Conference) trailed 62-59 with 23 seconds left, but the Panthers missed the front-end of a bonus with 13 seconds left and a shot by Ousmane Cisse rimmed out at the buzzer.

    Leonard hit three consecutive 3-pointers to open Eastern's scoring in the second half. Leonard scored nine points during an 18-6 run that turned a 32-23 deficit into a 41-38 lead with 13 minutes left.

    Mike Rose followed with 15 points and Mascoll chipped in 11.
