JACKSONVILLE, Ala. (AP) — Malcolm Drumwright made four free throws and Jeremy Watson two in the last 25 seconds as Jacksonville State held off Northern Colorado 79-76 Monday night, breaking a five-game losing streak.

Drumwright scored 28 points to lead Jacksonville State (4-10), including 9-for-9 at the line.

Jordan Wilson (12 points) scored five in the last eight seconds for Northern Colorado (3-8). Dallas Anglin led with 23 as the Bears erased a 13-point deficit.

The Bears worked into a 55-54 lead midway through the second half when Tanner Morgan converted a 3-point play. The Gamecocks took it right back with a dunk, but the game remained tight.

Drumwright's free throws with 11 seconds left gave the Gamecocks a four-point lead, Watson stretched that to 79-73 with three seconds left, and Wilson's layup and 3-pointer for the Bears weren't enough.

Jacksonville State shot 21-for-25 at the line, Northern Colorado 16-for-23.
