Eastern Kentucky holds off Austin Peay 70-67 in OVC tourney

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) Wendell Green Jr. scored 23 points, including clinching free throws with 12 seconds left, and Eastern Kentucky survived a last-gasp try from Austin Peay to edge the Governors 70-67 Thursday night in the first round of the Ohio Valley Conference tournament.

The Colonels meet top-seeded Belmont in Friday's semifinals.

Carlos Paez, a 5-foot-10 guard, tried twice to launch a game-tying 3-pointer over the taller Eastern Kentucky perimeter defense. He appeared to pull back his first shot after meeting 6-7 Michael Moreno in mid-air, stepped to his right and tried again. This attempt was blocked by Moreno, travelling only a few feet toward the basket and 6-9 Tre King wrapped up the ball as time ran out.
