MOREHEAD, Ky. -- Isaiah Canaan fell one point short of tying a career-high with 35 points and Murray State edged Morehead State 106-100 in double overtime Wednesday night.
Murray State (19-7, 10-4) outscored the Eagles 16-7 over the first 4:30 of the second half to take a commanding 53-37 lead. But Morehead State clawed back to force overtime on a Bakari Turner 3-pointer with 7 seconds left.
After a tip-in by Daniel with 4 seconds left in the first overtime forced another extra frame, Canaan scored eight points during a 10-1 run to open the second overtime and seal the win.
Morehead State (13-15, 7-7), which had won two straight, was led by Chavis Milton's 22 points.
Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
Guard Naz Mitrou-Long, whose 2015-16 season ended in December due to hip problems, has been granted a hardship waiver for the coming season, Iowa State said.
As the Sooners look to life without superstar Buddy Hield and his sidekicks, it's clear their unseasoned players will need to grow up fast.
