  •  

HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky. (AP) - Jarvis Jones posted 12 points, four rebounds, four steals and three assists to help East Tennessee State pull away, then hold off Northern Kentucky 49-44 Monday night in an Atlantic Sun Conference matchup.

Hunter Harris also had 12 points and Lester Wilson chipped in 11 for the Bucs, who snapped a nine-game losing streak.

Northern Kentucky (3-10, 1-4), which trailed by as many as 10, 24-14, in the first half, cut the deficit to 26-22 after Eshaunte Jones (18 points) hit a jumper to open the second half. But Jarvis Jones answered with a jumper and Harris made a layup to push ETSU (4-12, 2-1) back up by eight.

Wilson's free throw with 10:10 left gave the Bucs a 39-29 lead as Northern Kentucky never got any closer than four the rest of the way.

Northern Kentucky made just 7 of 12 free throws, which proved to be the difference.
