Corban Collins scores 16, Morehead State tops Jacksonville State 66-63


JACKSONVILLE, Alabama — Corban Collins scored 16 points, including two free throws with 20 seconds left, and Morehead State beat Jacksonville State 66-63 on Saturday.

Morehead State (9-13, 4-3 Ohio Valley) raced out to a 13-4 lead after Angelo Warner's 3-pointer just 6 ½ minutes in, and the Eagles led 38-30 at intermission.

Jacksonville State (9-13, 2-6) trailed by 11 with 9:19 left, but used a 16-7 run, capped by Malcolm Drumwright's jumper — to cut it to two with 1:03 left.

Drumwright made a steal and layup to tie it at 62 with 39 seconds left, then Collins put Morehead back up with two free throws.

Drumwright then made 1 of 2 from the line, and fouled on the miss. Warner added a pair of free throws to seal the win.

Warner finished with 15 points for the Eagles.

Darion Rackley led Jacksonville State with 16 points. Drumwright ended with 10.
