MURRAY, Ky. -- Isacc Miles hit a buzzer-beating jumper, lifting Murray State to a 65-63 win over Austin Peay on Saturday night.

Miles finished with seven points, all in the game's final 2 minutes.

Danero Thomas scored 23 points and grabbed 11 boards to lead the Racers, who extended the nation's second-longest winning streak to 13 games.

Campbell scored 20 points for the Governors (14-11, 8-5).
