JONESBORO, Ark. -- Isaiah Canaan scored 18 points and Murray State won at Arkansas State for the first time in 50 years with a 61-54 victory Wednesday night.

The Racers (9-1), who had been 0-8 in Jonesboro since their last road victory over the Red Wolves in 1962, also got 12 points and 13 rebounds from Stacy Wilson. The win was Murray State's sixth straight this season and extended its school-record road winning streak to 16 games.

Ed Townsel scored 15 points for Arkansas State (6-4). Brandon Peterson added 14 points and 11 rebounds, and Raeford Worsham scored 13.

The game was tied at 47 with 8 minutes left when Canaan and Dexter Field hit back-to-back 3-pointers for Murray State.

The Red Wolves pulled within 55-54 on Townsel's two free throws with 1:25 remaining. But Wilson responded with a 3-pointer for the Racers and Canaan added two free throws with 12 seconds left to close it out.
