MARTIN, Tenn. (AP) Jacolby Mobley sank five 3-pointers and finished with 25 points, Kedar Edwards added 17, and hot-shooting UT Martin pulled away for a 79-69 win over Southeast Missouri State on Saturday night.

Mobley was 8 of 14 from the field and Edwards 6 of 10 for UT Martin (11-8, 1-3 Ohio Valley), part of a team effort that finished 29 of 48 (60.4 percent) overall and 15 of 23 (65) in the second half.

Southeast Missouri State led 39-38 at halftime, and the game remained in doubt midway through the second half. But Matthew Butler converted a layup with 11:27 remaining to break a 53-all tie and spark a 9-0 run, finishing with the Eagles leading 62-53 with 9:33 to play.

The Redhawks couldn't get within four points the rest of the way.
