    DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Ricky Johnson made all 10 of his free throws in the final 1:06 to help Bethune-Cookman hold off Savannah State 68-62 in a Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference game Monday night.

    The Wildcats (7-12, 4-1) led 57-54 when Johnson went to the line for the first time. The freshman guard's only previous points in the game came on a layup early in the first half.

    His last four free throws came in the final 9 seconds, both trips to the line coming after Preston Blackmon sank a 3-pointer for the Tigers (8-10, 4-2).

    Bethune-Cookman led by as many as eight points, 21-13, in the first half but trailed 29-26 at halftime. The Wildcats went ahead to stay on Anthony Breeze's free throws that made it 43-42 with 9:32 left.

    Adrien Coleman scored 15 points and Kevin Dukes 13 for Bethune-Cookman.

    Rashad Hassan had 18 points and Blackmon 14 for Savannah State.
