JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Hunter Harris scored 22 points and knocked down four key free throws late to help East Tennessee State down Atlantic Sun Conference-foe Jacksonville 61-58 Saturday.
Harris hit two foul shots with 1:04 remaining to snap a 55-55 tie, and with the Buccaneers (10-20, 8-9) up 59-56, added two more free throws to ensure victory. He hit 8 of 10 at the foul line for the game and 7-of-10 shooting from the floor.
The Dolphins (14-15, 9-7) struggled mightily from deep, hitting 1 of 14 3-pointers. Keith McDougald, who entered leading the A-Sun shooting 48.3 percent from deep in conference play, hit just 1 of 7 treys and finished with 11 points.
Authorities say former Michigan State basketball player Keith Appling has been charged with carrying a concealed weapon and other crimes.
Point guard Jaylen Fisher, who reopened his recruitment after coaching changes at UNLV, has committed to TCU over a long list of schools.
Forward Kennedy Meeks, who has averaged 9.4 points and 6.5 rebounds at North Carolina, has pulled out of the NBA draft and will return to the Tar Heels.
