COOKEVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Josiah Moore sank the winning bucket with eight seconds left in overtime to lift Tennessee Tech to an 83-81 win over Eastern Kentucky on Saturday night.

Moore went 1 of 2 from the line with 1:09 left in overtime, enabling Eastern Kentucky's Eric Stutz to tie it at 81 with a layup 34 seconds later. Moore then hit the jumper to put the Golden Eagles (10-11, 2-6 Ohio Valley) back up by two and Eastern Kentucky's Corey Walden, who had forced the OT with a pair of free throws at the end of regulation, missed a 3-pointer at the other end.

Charles Jackson scored 18 points and grabbed 10 rebounds for Tennessee Tech, which shot 54 percent. Torrance Rowe and Aleksa Jugovic scored 14 points apiece while Javon McKay added 12 and Dwan Caldwell 11.

Walden led the Colonels (11-8, 3-3) with 22 points, Stutz finished with 20 and Timmy Knipp 14.
