AP Game Recap

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (AP) Cameron Morse scored 20 points, Matt Donlan added 14 more and Youngstown State overtook Northern Kentucky late in the second half for an 81-77 win Saturday night.

Youngstown State (11-18, 5-11 Horizon League) got a layup from Morse to spark a 7-0 burst that made it 79-75 with two minutes left and put the Penguins on top for good. Braun Hartfield had the go-ahead bucket during the run, and Morse later hit a jumper with 35 seconds to go, pushing the margin back to four after Northern Kentucky's Mason Faulkner got a pair of free throws to put the Norse within striking distance.

Moments later, Faulkner's 3-point attempt was blocked by Devin Haygood and neither team scored the rest of the way.

Jorden Kaufman and Braun Hartfield had 12 points apiece for Youngstown State and Francisco Santiago got 10.

Faulkner led Northern Kentucky (18-10, 9-6) with 16 points, Drew McDonald scored 14 and Carson Williams had 11 with 10 rebounds.
