    Warner's 3-pointer started a 9-1 run that gave Morehead State a 54-46 lead with 1:29 left, but Eastern Kentucky (10-9, 4-3) answered with an 8-0 burst for a 54-54 tie with 45 seconds to play.

    A free throw by Kelly gave the Eagles a one-point lead, and after a missed shot by the Colonels, Warner added two free throws with 6 seconds left.

    Jaron Jones scored 15 points, D'Mitri Riggs 13 and Mike DiNunno 12 for Eastern Kentucky.
