Keith Wenning capped his Ball State career with 215 yards passing, one touchdown and one interception. He’s the first Ball State quarterback to throw for 4,000 yards in a season.
Ball State’s offense struggled for much of the night, but the Cardinals put together a 16-play drive in the fourth quarter, capped by Edwards’ 1-yard run, to give Ball State a 20-16 lead.
The Red Wolves came right back, needing just five plays to march downfield. Knighten’s pass was perfectly thrown to Muse in the back of the end zone for the 23-20 lead.
Pacers fend off Cleveland’s rally
CLEVELAND (AP) — Paul George scored 16 points, Roy Hibbert made a putback and two free throws in the final 1:09 and the Indiana Pacers held off Cleveland’s late rally for an 82-78 win over the short-handed Cavaliers on Sunday night.
The Pacers led by 16 in the fourth before Dion Waiters brought Cleveland back by scoring 12 points in a 16-1 run that got the Cavs within 75-74 with 3:35 left. Hibbert’s free throw with 7.9 seconds left put the Pacers up 81-78, and Indiana got the ball back when Cleveland’s Earl Clark stepped out on an inbounds pass 1 second later.
David West made one free throw with 5.4 seconds left, and the Pacers escaped with their seventh win in eight games. At 27-6, Indiana has the NBA’s best record.
C.J. Miles scored 21 and Waiters had 14 for the Cavaliers, who played without All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving.
