Miami (Ohio) upsets Ball State 49-47 in MAC 1st round

MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) Eric Washington had 15 points, nine rebounds and six assists, and hit two free throws with 3.2 seconds left as eleventh-seeded Miami (Ohio) beat No. 6 seed Ball State 49-47 on Monday night in the first round of the Mid-American Conference tournament.

Ball State's Franko House powered his way inside the paint and made a layup with 32.5 seconds left to tie it at 47-all. Miami called time out with 24.1 seconds left, Washington was fouled on a pull-up jumper and hit the game-winners.

Ball State's long 3-pointer at the buzzer did not hit the rim.
