Teague sparks surge; Ball St. holds off Loyola Chicago 75-69

CHICAGO (AP) — K.J. Walton scored 22 points and Ball State held off Loyola Chicago for a 75-69 victory on Wednesday night for its fifth straight win.

Walton made 11 of 14 field goals. Tahjai Teague added 14 points, and Tayler Persons and Zach Gunn chipped in 12 apiece for the Cardinals (6-3), who shot 57 percent (28 of 49) from the floor.
