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.
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.
Charles Matthews, who spent his freshman season at Kentucky, has picked Michigan as his transfer school, according to a source.
Chad Ford and Jeff Goodman offer their opinions on the surprises they're expecting at the NBA draft, with Ford believing there will be a lot of trade activity while Goodman thinks people will be surprised by potential draft spot of Marquese Chriss.
Louisville coach Rick Pitino said he doesn't "have time to figure out what" Kentucky coach John Calipari meant in recent comments that appeared to be a jab at the Cardinals' program.
