MOREHEAD - A 25-footer by junior Jarrett Stokes sparked a 7-0 run and the Morehead State University basketball team went on to post a 73-67 win over Norfolk State University on Monday night at Johnson Arena.
The Eagles improved to 4-2 on the season with the victory, while the Spartans, who played in last year’s NCAA Tournament, slipped to 2-5 overall with their fourth consecutive setback.
“Tonight was a tough game against a quality opponent,” Associate Head Coach Dylan Howard said. “We are certainly happy with the win, but know that we have to play better in the future.”
Senior Milton Chavis led Morehead State for the sixth straight contest with 19 points on 8-of-15 from the field. He also yanked down a game-high 10 rebounds and handed out two assists.
Junior Maurice Lewis-Briggs finished with 12 points for MSU, while Stokes and senior Kahlil Owens posted 11 apiece. Lewis-Briggs (9) and Owens (7) also combined for 16 rebounds.
