Richmond, KY (Sports Network) - Mike DiNunno matched a season-high with 24 points as the Eastern Kentucky Colonels downed the Tennessee State Tigers, 76-67, in Ohio Valley Conference action at McBrayer Arena.

DiNunno shot 4-of-10 from 3-point range and 8-of-8 from the foul line while also dishing out seven assists for EKU (16-4, 6-1 OVC), which has won six of seven. Corey Walden added 22 points for the Colonels, while Eric Stutz chipped in 10 points and eight rebounds.

For TSU (12-9, 6-2), Patrick Miller netted 20 points, Jordan Cyphers had 15 points, and M.J. Rhett grabbed 10 rebounds. The loss snapped a season-long seven-game winning streak for the Tigers.
