MACON, Ga. (AP)—Kurtis Woods scored on a go-ahead layup with 19 seconds left and Kennesaw State upset top-seeded Lipscomb 72-69 on Wednesday in the first round of the Atlantic Sun Conference tournament.

Woods led the Owls with 19 points, Kelvin McConnell had 14 and Cummings added 13.

A-Sun player of the year Adnan Hodzic led Lipscomb with 29 points and 16 rebounds for his 11th double-double of the season.
