JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (AP) - Eshaunte Jones posted his fourth consecutive 20-plus-point game and Ernest Watson scored 16 points to help Northern Kentucky edge East Tennessee State 70-68 in Atlantic Sun Conference play and win three games in a row for the first time this season.
Jones tallied 25 points on a career-high seven 3-pointers. The 6-foot-4 forward has knocked down 22 treys in Northern Kentucky's last four games.
The Norse (7-11, 5-5) trailed 31-28 at halftime but opened the second half with seven straight points to take a 34-31 lead.
From there, ETSU (6-17, 4-6) tied the game twice and regained the lead on Rashawn Rembert's 3-pointer with 3:34 left to play. However, Northern Kentucky's Chad Jackson rattled off five straight points and Jones converted a four-point play with 26 seconds left to seal the victory.
Jackson finished with 12 points.
Jarvis Jones had 23 points for ETSU and Lester Wilson added 16.
