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.

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.
