Morehead St. 62, Ball St. 54

Terrance Hill scored 12 points and Ty Proffitt added 11 as the

only Morehead State players in double figures, and the Eagles

overcame a rough shooting performance to hold off Ball State 62-54

on Friday night.

The Eagles (6-7) won despite shooting just 38.8 percent from the

floor (19 of 49) compared to a 44.7 percent mark (17 of 38) for

Ball State.

The Cardinals jumped out to a 6-0 lead but, midway through the

opening half, Morehead State answered back as Hill’s first jumper

sparked a 22-6 run. The Eagles led the rest of the way.

Morehead State led 28-22 at halftime and outscored Ball State

34-32 in the second half.

Ball State pulled within three points, 56-53, with 47 seconds

left after Randy Davis’ 3-pointer. But the Eagles went 8-for-8 from

the foul line in the final minute.

Tyrae Robinson led the Cardinals (6-4) with 14 points.
