With his 82nd career double-double, Faried - college basketball's top rebounder this season - has 1,607 career rebounds, moving into 13th place on the NCAA career list, ahead of former Houston star Elvin Hayes.

Down 33-31 at halftime, the Eagles struggled for breathing room until a 17-6 run put them ahead 65-50, with Faried scoring on a layup at the end of the spurt with 5:05 to play.

The Skyhawks (11-20, 6-12), who were led by Benzor Simmons' 18 points, got no closer than eight after that.

Terrance Hill had 15 points for Morehead State and Sam Goodman added 12.
