CHICAGO -- Camron Justice scored a career-high 30 points and IUPUI held on for a 66-64 victory over Illinois-Chicago on Friday night.
After the Jaguars' Jaylen Minnett made 1 of 2 free throws for a 65-62 lead with 7.5 seconds left, UIC's Tarkus Ferguson was fouled as he let loose with a half-court shot. An official ruled the foul came before the shot and Ferguson made both free throws. Following a quick foul and an Elyjah Goss free throw, Ferguson heaved another half-courter which bounced off the backboard and rim.
Justice reached double figures for the 15th straight game. Minnett added 12 points.
Justice gave IUPUI the lead for good with two minutes left at 60-52 when he bookended a 9-0 run with 3-pointers.
The Jaguars (8-8, 1-2 Horizon) ended a string four straight losses, all on the road.
