Wright State beats Northern Kentucky in Horizon showdown

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) Loudon Love scored 15 points and Wright State held off a late rally from Northern Kentucky 69-67 in a matchup of the Horizon League's top two teams on Friday night.

The Raiders (20-8, 12-3) moved into a tie for first place in the conference standings with the Norse (19-8, 12-3) and, with the sweep of the season series, hold the tiebreaker in postseason seeding.

Love made it 66-62 with 2:43 left and Jaylon Hall hit a driving runner to make it 68-65 with 14 seconds to go. Wright State fouled to force free throws with 2.8 seconds left. Lavone Holland II made both and Northern Kentucky was unable to get another shot.

Wright State took the lead for good early in the second half when Parker Ernsthausen's 3-pointer made it 37-34. The Raiders led by 11 before the Norse rallied to within 66-65 on Jordan Garnett's 3-pointer with 1:19 to go.

Tyler Sharpe had 16 points with three triples to lead the Norse.
