EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) Daishon Knight hit a baseline jumper with two seconds remaining, lifting Illinois State to a 69-67 victory over Evansville in overtime on Saturday.
As a result, the Redbirds (19-11, 10-8) claimed the No. 4 seed for the Missouri Valley Conference tournament at St. Louis, but will again face the Purple Aces (19-11, 9-9), the No. 5 seed, at St. Louis on Friday.
DeVaughn Akoon-Purcell made a runner with two seconds left in regulation to tie the game after the Redbirds blew an eight-point lead with 7:57 to go.
