    COOKEVILLE, Tenn. -- Zac Swansey scored his only field goal with 4.5 seconds left and Tennessee Tech survived a furious Eastern Illinois rally for a 65-64 victory Sunday night in an Ohio Valley Conference game.

    The Golden Eagles (4-5, 2-0) led by 17 points in the second half, but their last double-digit advantage disappeared during a 5:50 stretch in which Eastern Illinois (4-7, 1-2) outscored them 13-0.

    Swansey, who had eight assists to lead Tennessee Tech, had missed his first five shots before hitting the game-winner. Alfred Jones came off the bench to lead the Golden Eagles with 13 points. Zach Bailey added 12 points and Kevin Murphy contributed 10.

    Curry McKinney and Jeremy Granger led all scorers with 15 apiece for the Panthers. James Hollowell added 12 points and seven rebounds for Eastern Illinois.
