Recap: Morehead State vs. Indiana State

Morehead, KY (Sports Network) - Angelo Warner and Milton Chavis each scored 15 points, as the Morehead State Eagles notched a 71-63 win over the Indiana State Sycamores in non-conference play at Johnson Arena.

Although Warner and Chavis were the only double-digit scorers for the victors, 11 different Eagles (5-5) reached the scoring column to help the team end a three-game slide.

The Sycamores (4-3) opened their five-game road trip with a loss, despite a game-high 20 points from Khristian Smith and another 19 from Manny Arop. Jake Odum also finished in double figures with 15 points.

The Sycamores never led in the contest, as MSU jumped out to a 9-2 lead and never looked back.
