North Alabama led 33-32 at halftime before the Jackrabbits used an 11-5 run and never trailed again. Jamari Blackmon's jumper with 11:03 left brought the Lions within 52-51, but Key followed with a 3-pointer and a layup and Dentlinger made two foul shots and a layup for a 61-51 lead. The Lions couldn't get closer than five the rest of the way.
The Jackrabbits now have won 11 straight at home and are currently tied for the ninth-longest active streak in Division I.
It was the first-ever meeting between the two schools.
