Richmond, KY (Sports Network) - Mike DiNunno matched a season-high with 24 points as the Eastern Kentucky Colonels downed the Tennessee State Tigers, 76-67, in Ohio Valley Conference action at McBrayer Arena.

DiNunno shot 4-of-10 from 3-point range and 8-of-8 from the foul line while also dishing out seven assists for EKU (16-4, 6-1 OVC), which has won six of seven. Corey Walden added 22 points for the Colonels, while Eric Stutz chipped in 10 points and eight rebounds.

For TSU (12-9, 6-2), Patrick Miller netted 20 points, Jordan Cyphers had 15 points, and M.J. Rhett grabbed 10 rebounds. The loss snapped a season-long seven-game winning streak for the Tigers.

EKU shot a lofty 66.7 percent from the field in the first half while holding TSU to just 30 percent, as it took a comfortable 39-24 lead at the break.

The Tigers closed the gap in the second half by outscoring the Colonels, 43-37, but EKU was able to hang on thanks in large part to a 17-of-19 showing from the foul line in the final 20 minutes.

TSU won the rebounding battle, 31-25, but the Tigers were outscored in the paint by a 34-20 margin.
