EKU wins on layup

RICHMOND, Ky. (AP) - Papa Oppong scored 20 points and Justin
Stommes added 16, including a go-ahead layup with 21 seconds left
Saturday night, to lift Eastern Kentucky past Jacksonville State
66-65.
Stommes' layup for the Colonels (17-8, 9-4 Ohio Valley
Conference) came after both teams missed shots on two consecutive
possessions.
Dominique Shellman had given the Gamecocks (10-13, 6-7) a 65-64
lead by making one of two free throws with 2:22 remaining to break
the game's 10th tie.
Jacksonville State twice led by six points in the second half,
only to see Eastern Kentucky come back. The Colonels held a
seven-point lead, 57-50, with 6:56 left but couldn't hold it.
Both teams shot over 50 percent in the second half - Eastern
Kentucky at 54.2 percent (13-for-24) and Jacksonville State at 52.2
percent (12-for-23).
Trenton Marshall scored 19 points and Nick Murphy 15 to lead the
Gamecocks.
