Eastern Michigan Falls To Miami Ohio 62-57 in OT

OXFORD, Ohio (AP) – Julian Mavunga scored 19 points, grabbed 19 rebounds and handed out eight assists to lead Miami (Ohio) to a 62-57 victory over Eastern Michigan in a Mid-American Conference game Wednesday night.

The senior forward sank 8 of 10 free throws in the final 44 seconds of overtime to keep the RedHawks (6-14, 2-6) in the lead down the stretch.

Miami trailed 46-41 with 1:27 remaining in regulation. After Quinten Rollins’ layup cut the lead to three points, Mavunga blocked a layup attempt by Darrell Lampley and assisted on Jon Harris’ 3-pointer with 18 seconds left that forced overtime.

The Eagles (10-12, 5-3), who were led by Lampley’s 17 points, had led by as many as 11 points, 45-34, with 3:28 to go in the second half.

Miami, which had lost its last four games, has 16 consecutive victories over Eastern Michigan.
