EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. (AP) - Mike Liabo scored 16 points, Myles Taylor made three game-winning free throws in the final 43 seconds and UT-Martin beat SIU-Edwardsville 65-62 on Saturday night to snap a four-game losing streak.

Jeremy Washington added 15 points for the Skyhawks (5-16, 2-7 Ohio Valley), who had lost 11 of their previous 12.

Mark Yelovich had 16 points and Jerome Jones 13 for the Cougars (7-11, 3-5), who took their only lead, 60-59, on Jones' 3-pointer with 2:05 to play. But Liabo's 3 a half-minute later put UT-Martin back on top.

Jones then hit another jumper to tie it with 1:14 left, but Taylor, who had 12 points and 14 rebounds, was fouled and made two free throws to give Edwardsville a 64-62 lead. He added another with 16 seconds left after Jones missed a 3-pointer.

The Skyhawks led by as many as 10 in the second half before the Cougars rallied.
