MOREHEAD, Ky. -- Patrick Miller poured in a career-high 38 points and drilled a go-ahead 3-pointer with 2 seconds remaining, carrying Tennessee State to a 70-68 upset over Morehead State Thursday night.
Tennessee State opened the second half on an 18-7 run to lead 52-38 at the midway mark, but Morehead State fought back to pull within one.
After a split pair of free throws by Jaleel Queary, Angelo Warner hit two to tie it at 67. A technical foul on Tennessee State sent Warner to the line again, but he split the free throws to put Morehead State up one with 7 seconds remaining.
Miller drained the game-winner and Drew Kelly couldn't answer with a 3-pointer of his own as time expired.
Miller went 12 of 19 from the field for the Tigers (5-24, 4-11 Ohio Valley).
Warner finished with 19 for Morehead (19-11, 10-5) and Kelly had 15.
Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
Guard Naz Mitrou-Long, whose 2015-16 season ended in December due to hip problems, has been granted a hardship waiver for the coming season, Iowa State said.
As the Sooners look to life without superstar Buddy Hield and his sidekicks, it's clear their unseasoned players will need to grow up fast.
