USI sophomore forward Billy Harris (Carbondale, Illinois) inbounded the ball to Ragland, who drove across the half-court line before letting the winning shot fly with one second to play.

USI senior forward Marlowe Currie (St. Louis, Missouri) led the Eagles with 24 points and extended his streak of scoring in double figures to 30 games. USI is 33-9 when Currie scores in double figures.

Senior center Ronnie Griffin (Louisville, Kentucky) added 10 points and grabbed a team-high 10 rebounds in the win.
