Terrance Hill hit a 3-pointer with 39 seconds to go to help Morehead State stop Murray State's nation-leading 17-game win streak, 70-65, on Thursday night.

The Eagles (20-9, 14-3 Ohio Valley Conference) led 60-51 with 5:38 to go, but the Racers (26-4, 16-1) went on an 11-2 run to tie it on Isacc Miles' two free throws with 1:14 remaining.
