Eastern Kentucky edges Western Carolina 72-70

RICHMOND, Ky. (AP) Mike DiNunno made a layup with 3 seconds left, and Eastern Kentucky roared back from an 11-point halftime deficit to beat Western Carolina 72-70 and remain undefeated for the season on Saturday night.

Glenn Cosey scored 15 points, DiNunno had 14, Corey Walden 11 and Jeff Johnson 10 for the Colonels, who won their seventh consecutive game to open the season.

The last time the Colonels started as well was in 1946-47, when the ``Maroons'' won their first 11 games.

Western Carolina (3-5) was led by Tawaski King with 18 points, Mike Brown with 11 and James Sinclair with 10.

The Colonels outshot the Catamounts 52.7 percent (28 of 52) to 30 percent (9 of 30) in the second half to stage the comeback.

Cosey tied the game at 68 with a layup with 51 seconds left, and the Catamounts' Trey Sumler made it 70-68 with 16 seconds left.

If you take a deep dive through the comments section you'll see @Easymoneysniper (Durant's Instagram handle) comment "🔥🔥🔥🔥."

For the older generation less familiar with emojis, the fire is used as a term of endearment as to say, "that's hot," or "that's cool." 

Washington's QB Dwayne Haskins was the latest to comment under one of the Red Wolves concept posts with his approval.

"Not gone hold you. I can fw this," Haskins said. For those confused, that's a good thing.

Speculation could evolve into reality pretty soon as reports surfaced Saturday that an announcement of a name change could be coming in "the next few days."

No matter what the name is chosen, we're fairly certain more players will be taking to social media with their reactions. 

Just a hunch.

All of that hard work hasn't come without reward as it seems as though Young will be the highest rated rookie in the upcoming Madden 21 video game. 

Take a look.

While this hasn't officially been announced by Madden, it honestly makes the most sense if we're being completely honest.

Young got a hold of this report and shared it on his Instagram story. It's fair to say he's happy with it.
