Jay Bowie and T.J. Curry each hit two free throws in the final 10 seconds for the Red Foxes (1-2) after Brian Barbour's layup brought the Lions (2-1) within a point, 63-62.

Barbour scored 15 of his 19 points in the second half and made 10 of 10 from the free-throw line overall, including eight in the second half.
