MURRAY, Ky. -- Isaiah Canaan had 21 points and five assists to lead Murray State to its fifth straight victory, 75-70 over Western Kentucky in a nonconference game Sunday.
Canaan scored eight of his points during a 14-2 run by the Racers (8-1) that turned a 54-52 deficit with 7:17 remaining into a 66-56 advantage at the 3:34 mark.
The Hilltoppers (8-3), who had won six straight, cut their deficit to 68-64 with 1:54 left after two consecutive 3-pointers by Brandon Harris, who led them with a career-high 23 points after coming in averaging 4.2.
