The Colonels (6-4) trailed 74-72 with 46 seconds left when Mayo was fouled, then drained both free throws to tie it 74-all. Following a Northern Kentucky timeout, Drew McDonald missed a 3-pointer for the Norse (8-3) and Jomaru Brown snagged the defensive rebound. Seconds later, Mayo made the go-ahead jumper for the win.
Mayo led the Colonels with 27 points and 11 rebounds and Brown added 16 points and four assists.
