CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. -- Jauwan Scaife sank a 3-pointer as time expired, capping a wild final minute and giving Ball State an 85-82 victory over BracketBusters foe Southeast Missouri on Saturday night in the first-ever meeting between the schools.
Scaife had 18 points, including two free throws that gave the Cardinals (11-14) a 77-67 lead with 1:33 left. But a combination of Ball State turnovers, missed free throws and clutch Southeast Missouri shots helped the Redhawks (14-15) rally back. They tied game on Marland Smith's 3-pointer with 7 seconds left. After a timeout, Scaife nailed his game-winner.
Southeast Missouri led by as many as nine before Ball State took its first lead, 56-54, on Chris Bond's jumper with 8:37 to play.
