RICHMOND, Ky. (AP) - Ian Clark scored 21 points as Belmont shot a blistering 67.4 percent, including 73.3 percent from beyond the arc, to defeat Eastern Kentucky 85-74 Saturday night and remain undefeated in Ohio Valley Conference play.

Kerron Johnson answered with an end-of-shot-clock 3-pointer, Clark added a layup and J.J. Mann hit 3 of 4 free throws to send Eastern Kentucky to its first home loss of the season. Mann finished with 18 points and Johnson 16.

Belmont (17-4, 8-0) used a 13-0 spurt and 16-of-23 shooting - including 7 of 8 from long range - to lead 42-31 at the break.

Corey Walden scored 24 point to lead Eastern Kentucky (16-5, 6-2), which made 11 of 21 3-pointers.
