  •  

KENNESAW, Ga. (AP) Corey Walden scored 18 of his game-high 21 points in the second half to help Eastern Kentucky hold off Kennesaw State 68-60 in the Kennesaw State Tournament on Saturday.

Leading 30-26 at the break, Eastern Kentucky (2-0) got off to a sloppy start in the second half, missing eight of its first nine shots and committing five turnovers as Kennesaw State held a 34-32 lead over six minutes into the second period.

Then Waldren took over, scoring 12 of the Colonels' next 18 points as EKU opened 50-39 lead with 8:48 remaining.

Kennesaw State (0-2) pulled within four, 58-54, on Nigel Pruitt's layup with 1:32 left, but 22 seconds later, Waldren found Marcus Lewis for a dunk to push the lead back to six and the Owls never threatened again.

Delbert Love led Kennesaw State with 16 points.
