NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Kerron Johnson scored 15 points and
Scott Saunders had a double-double as Belmont routed Jacksonville
81-50 on Monday night to remain perfect in Atlantic Sun play.
Saunders scored 13 points and grabbed 12 rebounds for the Bruins
(14-3, 6-0), and Mick Hedgepeth had 11 points.
An early 11-1 run, and a J.J. Mann 3-pointer, gave the Bruins a
17-5 lead with 10:59 left in the first half. Belmont's used a
balanced attach - shooting 44 percent from the field and clamping
down on defense to limit Jacksonville to 30 percent shooting - to
pull away from the Dolphins.
The Bruins were 9 of 26 from 3-point range.
Russell Powell led the Dolphins (10-4, 4-1) with 16 points, and
Glenn Powell had 11.
