    CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) -- Kenard Moore scored 17 points off the bench Wednesday to lead Southeast Missouri to a 66-55 win over Eastern Kentucky.

    Calvin Williams added 10 points and Brandon Foust had 12 rebounds for the Redhawks (10-5, 5-0 Ohio Valley), who remained in first place in the conference.

    Justin Stommes scored a career-high 19 points and Mike Rose added 14 for Eastern Kentucky (6-7, 3-2).

    Southeast Missouri, which led 31-25 at halftime, pulled away midway through the second half on the strength of its bench, which outscored the Colonels' bench 41-9 overall.

    Eastern Kentucky's Josh Taylor tied the game at 38-38 with a 3-pointer nine minutes into the second half, but Southeast Missouri responded with a 15-2 run to take its biggest lead, 56-43, with just under six minutes remaining.
