Eastern Illinois beats SIU-Edwardsville 78-66 at OVC tourney

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Cornell Johnston seemed to be in the right place to spot up and knock down a 3-pointer every time Eastern Illinois' lead began to shrink Wednesday night at the Ohio Valley Conference tournament as the sixth-seeded Panthers fended off No. 7 seed SIU-Edwardsville 78-66 to win their first post-season game since 2010.

Johnston hit 5 of 6 from long range to finish with 22 points, tying his career best, and Chris Olivier added 24 on 10 of 13 shooting.

Eastern Illinois (17-13) opened a tight game with a 9-2 run in the first two minutes of the second half, stretching the lead to 39-28 capped by an Olivier dunk before SIU-Edwardsville called time.
