    MUNCIE, Ind. -- Anthony Newell scored 20 points for Ball State as the Cardinals held off a second-half comeback by Presbyterian for a 60-57 victory on Sunday.

    Randy Davis hit one of two free-throw shots with 5 seconds left for the Cardinals (5-5), then Kevin Davis missed a last-second three-pointer for Presbyterian that would have tied the game. Johnson led Presbyterian (5-6) with 15 points, while Pierre Miller scored 12.
