Wild Finish Helps EIU Get Past Morehead State
CHARLESTON, Ill. (AP) -- Tyler Laser hit two free throws on a technical foul with 1 second left as Eastern Illinois edged Morehead State 76-75 on Thursday night.

Maze Stallworth drained a 3-pointer with 14 seconds left to put Morehead State ahead 75-74.

As the Panthers came up the court, the ball was knocked away, and a Morehead State player tried to call a timeout. But the Eagles had used all their timeouts, so a technical was called, and Laser hit the free throws.

James Hollowell had 23 points, Laser 16 and Jeremy Granger 10 for the Panthers (13-11, 7-7 Ohio Valley).

Eastern Illinois shot 57.8 percent (26 of 45) from the field and 95.5 percent (21 of 22) from the line.

Kenneth Faried led the Eagles (17-8, 11-3) with 19 points but had his string of nine straight double-doubles halted with seven rebounds. Stallworth scored 18 points and Demonte Harper 15.
