Belmont tops 2nd seed Eastern Kentucky, 53-52

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Evan Bradds sank two free throws with :26 left and Amanze Egekeze rebounded a Corey Walden miss with one second left in the game as No. 3 seed Belmont upset No. 2 seed Eastern Kentucky, 53-52 Friday night to earn a date with top-seeded Murray State in the Ohio Valley Conference.

The win ended the Colonels (19-11) quest for a second straight OVC tournament crown and the automatic berth into the NCAA tournament that goes with it.

Eastern Kentucky took a seven-point lead at the break, but managed to score just 19 second-half points.
