    MARTIN, Tenn. -- Lester Hudson scored 28 points, including a pair of last-second free throws, to help Tennessee-Martin hold off Murray State 75-71 on Monday night.

    Murray State led 66-65 with 3:46 left after Tyler Holloway hit a jumper, but Tennessee-Martin went on a 10-5 run that started with two Reuben Clayton free throws at the 3:03 mark and ended with Hudson's clinching shots.

    Olajide Hay added 16 points and Marquis Weddle had 15 for the Skyhawks (8-5, 1-2 Ohio Valley Conference).

    Kevin Thomas led the Racers (6-7, 1-2) with 21 points, Isacc Miles added 18 and Holloway and Jeffery McClain had 10 apiece.

    Murray State outshot Tennessee-Martin from the field -- 48.3 percent (28 of 58) compared to 41.9 percent (26 of 62) -- but hit just 10 of 20 free throws. The Skyhawks were 17 of 22 from the line in the win.
