RICHMOND, Ky. (AP) - Glenn Cosey drilled a last-second 3-pointer to give Eastern Kentucky a 79-78 come-from-behind win over Southeast Missouri State Saturday night.

The Colonels led at the half, 44-37, but Southeast Missouri State started the second with a 26-10 spurt to take a 63-54 lead with under eight minutes to play. Eastern Kentucky used a 10-2 run to make it 72-70 with 2:13 left.

Tyler Stone’s two free throws gave the Redhawks a 74-70 lead, but Marcus Lewis dunked with 2:04 left and Cosey hit a pair of free throws to knot the score, 76-76 with 26 seconds left. Stone had a tip-in with seven seconds left.

Southeast Missouri (12-11, 3-6 Ohio Valley), which now has a six-game losing streak at Richmond, got a career-high 32 points from Jarekious Bradley. Tyler Stone added 15.

Cosey and Corey Walden each scored 20 points to lead Eastern Kentucky (16-7, 7-3), with Lewis adding 12.
