NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Kenny Moore scored a career-high 30 points, including hitting 7 of 9 from long range, to lead Tennessee State over Morehead State 77-72 on Wednesday night.

Kharon Butcher added 12 points and Jay Harris 11 for the Tigers (9-9, 2-3 Ohio Valley Conference), who snapped a season-high three-game losing skid with the victory.

The game was close the entire way, including a 34-32 halftime lead by the Tigers, until Morehead State took a timeout with the game tied at 64-all with 4:30 left. The teams came back onto the floor and Tennessee State proceeded to get hot from 3-point land, as Robert Covington and Wil Peters knocked down back-to-back 3s to spark an 8-0 run.

The Tigers led the rest of the way.

Ty Proffitt scored 19 points to lead the Eagles (8-10, 2-3).
