Johnson leads Western Kentucky over Indiana State 75-62

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) Justin Johnson scored a career-high 24 points, grabbed 10 rebounds and Western Kentucky defeated Indiana State 75-62 on Sunday.

Johnson was 10 of 11 from the floor as the freshman collected his fourth double-double. Chris Harrison-Docks added 15 points and Marlon Hunter 11 for Western Kentucky (5-4), which won its sixth straight road game over two seasons.

Leading by seven at halftime, the Hilltoppers opened the second half on an 18-5 run to go up 55-35 with 11:44 to go. The lead never went under 12 with a pair of baskets by Johnson making it 75-46 with 53 seconds remaining.

Khristian Smith had 15 points, Brenton Scott 14 and Devonte Brown 11 for the Sycamores (3-6), who have lost four straight games.

Though only 210 miles apart, this was only the sixth meeting between the schools and just the second in 74 seasons since 1941-42. The other was in 2009.
