    CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) -- Jaycen Herring scored 21 points, including seven free throws in the final minute, to lead Southeast Missouri to a 102-95 win over Tennessee State on Thursday.

    Calvin Williams had 16 points and 12 rebounds for the Redhawks, Kenard Moore had 18, Roderick Pearson had 15 and Brandon Foust added 12.

    Southeast Missouri (5-4, 1-0 Ohio Valley Conference) gradually built an advantage in the first half, leading by as many as 13 with 5:30 remaining. Tennessee State tightened it to 41-39 at halftime, due in large part to Bruce Price's 14 first-half points.

    Price led Tennessee State (2-5, 0-1 OVC) with 32 points and eight rebounds. Gerald Robinson had 31 and LaDarious Weaver added 11 for the Tigers.

    The Redhawks went on an 11-2 run to begin the second half, but the Tigers again chipped away and pulled to within three twice in the final two minutes.

    Tennessee State, the OVC leader in 3-point percentage (40.8 percent) entering the game, made its first three 3-pointers but connected on just six of its last 31 attempts from long range.

    The 102 points were the most Southeast Missouri has scored since 2002.
