TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) - Jake Kelly made the final shot of a three-point play with less than a second left to put Indiana State over Missouri State 70-69 on Wednesday night, ending the Bears' perfect conference record.
Kelly was fouled just before the buzzer as he made a game-tying layup. Because so little time was left, officials reviewed the layup for five minutes before saying it was good.
That sent the Sycamores guard to the free-throw line for the winning shot.
Kelly led the Sycamores (12-7, 7-1 Missouri Valley) with 19 points while Carl Richard added 18 and RJ Mahurin scored 11.
The Bears (15-4, 7-1) ended a nine-game winning streak, which included their first seven conference matches. The Bears and Sycamores are now tied atop the Missouri Valley Conference.
Nafis Ricks scored 17 points, Jermaine Mallett 14, Adam Leonard 13 and Kyle Weems 10 for Missouri State
