BALTIMORE (AP) Jibri Blount grabbed nine rebounds and scored 20 points, including the game-winning shot with 2.2 seconds left, and North Carolina Central Beat Morgan State 58-57 on Monday night to win its fifth straight.

Malik Miller's layup with 14 seconds to play put the Bears up 58-57 before the Eagles called a timeout. Blount made a layup and a 3-pointer at the buzzer by Morgan State's Troy Baxter Jr. missed.

Deven Palmer scored 17 points with six boards for the Eagles (12-12, 8-2 Mideastern Athletic Conference), who held the Bears to 39% shooting from the field (20 of 52). Jordan Perkins made six assists and Evan Clayborne had three blocks.

Baxter scored 12 points and had three blocks and Miller added 10 points with eight rebounds for Morgan State (13-13, 7-4), which saw its four-game win streak end.

NC Central faces NC A&T on the road next Monday. Morgan State plays Norfolk State on the road on Saturday.
