EVANSVILLE, Ind.

Israel Barnes scored 16 of his 19 points after halftime for Southeast Missouri State (19-16). The Redhawks won four games in as many days. including a 65-57 win over top-seeded beat Morehead State 65-57 in the semifinals Friday, to seal their first trip to the Big Dance since 2000.

Barnes converted a three-point play and hit a 3-pointer to give the Redhawks an 82-80 lead with 1:38 left. Tennessee Tech's Jayvin Harvey tied it with two free throws 21 seconds later, but Russell hung in the air to finish a driving layup and then made 5 of 6 from the foul line in the final 35 seconds to cap the scoring.
