MURRAY, Ky. (AP) - Donte Poole scored 22 points and Isaiah Canaan added 16 - including the 1,000th of his career - and No. 19 Murray State remained unbeaten with a 76-67 victory over Eastern Kentucky on Wednesday night.
     
The Racers (15-0, 3-0 Ohio Valley Conference) are one win from matching the school's all-time best start set in 1935-36. But to get there they had to hold off a furious rally by the Colonels.
     
The Colonels trailed by as many as 15 points, but came within one with just under 5 minutes to go before falling for the seventh straight time in the series.
     
Jaron Jones scored 23 points for Eastern Kentucky (9-7, 3-1).
