"I'll be following them, and I'll be rooting for them because we need them to win, right? You want playing time, obviously, but guys are out there competing every day in practice". The Cardinals battled back to go ahead 67-58 with 6:47 to play after Persons scored seven straight points for his team on a pair of jump shots and a 3-pointer.

In its three-game winning streak, Ball State has forced opponents to turn the ball over 41 times. Trey Moses scored nine points as the Cardinals went to him often down the stretch, while Kyle Mallers and Jeremie Tyler added eight each.
