    CAPE GIRARDEAU, Missouri — Corey Walden scored 23 points and Eric Stutz added 18 to lead Eastern Kentucky over Southeast Missouri 68-55 on Saturday night.

    Stutz finished at 70-percent shooting and Walden went 10 of 10 from the free throw line. The Colonels (10-5, 2-0 Ohio Valley Conference) missed just two out of 18 free throws, going 6 of 6 in the final five minutes.
