MURRAY, Ky. (AP) Chris Horton scored 29 points with 10 rebounds and Austin Peay completed a late comeback to beat Murray State 76-73 on Saturday.

Murray State led by seven with 2:50 left after a layup by Gee McGhee. Horton completed a 3-point play on the next possession, and then hit a jumper on the next. Zach Glotta's 3-pointer with 30 seconds remaining capped a 10-4 run to draw the Governors within one.

Horton made a steal next time down, forcing the Racers to foul. Josh Robinson made a pair, and then Tre Ivory did the same moments later - his only points of the game - to seal the comeback win. Murray State turned it over three times in the last 40 seconds without getting off a shot.

Robinson finished with 21 points for Austin Peay (11-15, 4-7 Ohio Valley). Glotta ended with 11 points.
