    MOREHEAD, Ky. -- Kenneth Faried notched another double-double with 20 points and 13 rebounds as Morehead State defeated Tennessee Tech 76-64 Thursday night.

    The Eagles (10-6, 3-2 Ohio Valley Conference) trailed 9-0 after a layup by Jud Dillard with 16:32 left in the opening half. But Morehead State scored the next 19 points -- led by seven points from Arthur McMillan -- to lead by 10 with 10:31 to go.

    Eight straight points from the Golden Eagles (6-7, 2-2) made the score 19-17 in favor of Morehead State as the Eagles headed into the break with a 32-28 advantage.
