BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP)—Rashad Reed hit one of two free throws with .1 seconds left on the clock to give Indiana State a 64-63 win over Western Kentucky on Tuesday night.

Following two missed free throws by Dwayne Lathan, Jameson Tipping hit an up-and-down running 3-pointer to tie the game for Western Kentucky with .6 seconds left. Reed was fouled by the Hilltoppers’ Jeremy Evans while going for a down court inbound pass, leading to the game-winning free throw.
Lathan paced the Sycamores with 15 points.
A.J. Slaughter led Western Kentucky with 20 points.
The loss comes one night after Anthony Sally hit one of two free throws with 3.7 seconds left to defeat California State-Northridge 68-67.
