    MACOMB, Ill. -- Jamie Batish nailed a 3-point jumper with 5 seconds remaining to give Western Illinois a 60-57 victory over Southeastern Louisiana on Saturday night.

    Western Illinois (1-2) was trailing 53-49 with 4:01 left when Garret Covington took control, scoring 8 of the last 11 points to give the Leathernecks their first lead since the 10:51 mark, when they were ahead 39-38.

    Covington, who finished with 29 points, slipped in for two layups and made four free throws to set up Batish's game-winning jump shot.

    Covington was 4 of 9 from beyond the arc, making 7 of 15 field goal attempts.
