Eastern Kentucky crushes NAIA Brescia 107-43



RICHMOND, Ky. (AP) — Eric Stutz had a career-high 22 points to lead five double-figure scorers for Eastern Kentucky in a 107-43 rout of Brescia, a NAIA school, Saturday night.

Jeff Allgood added 15 points, Mike DiNunno and Joshua Jones 14 apiece and Jaron Jones 13 for the Colonels (4-5), who snapped a three game skid. The Colonels had six players with two or more 3-pointers, as Eastern Kentucky shot 16 of 25 (64 percent) from beyond the arc.

The Bearcats were just 3 of 15 (20 percent) from long range.

Bryce Garrett got Brescia on the board first with a 3-pointer, but it was all Eastern Kentucky from then on. The Colonels scored 17 unanswered points and led the rest of the way. They led 51-26 at the break and blew out the Bearcats 56-17 in the second half.

Myron Christian led Brescia, which counted the game as an exhibition, with 10 points.
