    MOREHEAD, Ky. -- J.J. Mann scored 22 points, including a layup with 12 seconds to play, as Belmont scored the final 10 points of the game to beat Morehead State 76-73 Wednesday night.

    Morehead State (14-9, 5-3 Ohio Valley) took a 69-62 lead on a Luka Pajkovic layup with 3:55 remaining. Mann hit a 3 before Drew Kelly hit two free throws to push the Eagles' lead back to six about 1 1/2 minutes later.

    Then Morehead State's wheels fell off.

    The Eagles made just 2 of 6 free throws and committed five of their 17 turnovers in the final 1:36 as Belmont (17-7, 8-1) closed the game on a 10-0 run, including five points from Mann.
