    YPSILANTI, Michigan — Sean Sellers sank a 3-pointer in the final seconds of overtime to give Ball State a 60-59 edge over Eastern Michigan in the Mid-American Conference opener for both teams Wednesday night.

    Eastern Michigan responded early in the second half with a 9-1 run capped by back-to-back dunks by Karrington Ward to lead 32-23 with 13:25 to play. Sellers made a layup to tie it, 48-48, with 1:20 remaining and then Jeremiah Davis sent the game into overtime on a tip shot with 49 seconds left in regulation.

    Raven Lee led the Eagles with 16 points.
