01/16/2016 04:42 PM

SIU-Edwardsville Junior Guard Burak Eslik hit three free throws in the final seconds, as the Cougars rallied to defeat Eastern Kentucky 67-65.

The loss is the second in a row and third in four games for the Colonels who see their record fall to 11-9, 2-3 in the OVC. More troubling, EKU falls to 2-7 on the road.

EKU Freshman Nick Mayo led all scorers with 28. The Colonels, who are 9-1 at home, return to Richmond on Thursday when they host Jacksonville State.
