MURRAY, Ky. (AP) Jeffery Moss scored 20 points and hit his fifth 3-point jumper of the game inside the final minute to snap a tie and push Murray State to a 65-63 victory over Evansville Wednesday night.

The game was close throughout, but the second half saw five ties and 10 lead changes as Murray State (3-5) overcame 10 first-half turnovers to end a three-game skid.
