McReynolds keys Eastern Illinois, upsets Murray State, 82-65

MURRAY, Ky. (AP) Demetrius McReynolds scored 25 points and Eastern Illinois picked up a win at Murray State for only the third time in program history, a much-needed 82-65 Ohio Valley Conference victory.

The upset knocks the Racers out of sole possession of first-place in the conference's West division. They now are tied with Southeast Missouri State, which notched a 90-61 win over UT Martin on Saturday. Both teams now have six conference losses.

After an 85-80 loss to Austin Peay, Eastern Illinois (14-14, 6-9) needed to win its final two games and get some help from its rivals to reach the conference tournament. The Panthers close out the regular season Saturday at Southern Illinois.
