NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP)—Malcolm Smith scored 21 points and grabbed 12 rebounds to lead Lipscomb to a 79-72 victory over Kennesaw State on Thursday night in an Atlantic Sun Conference game.

Freshman center Stephen Hurt added 12 points and 10 rebounds for the Bisons (8-11, 3-5), including a three-point play and a jumper to start a 10-0 run that put them ahead to stay, 73-64, with 1:50 left. It was the game’s 16th lead change.

The Owls (2-18, 1-7), who trailed 36-30 at halftime, shot 52.4 percent (11 of 21) in the second half to Lipscomb’s 31.8 percent (7 of 22) but couldn’t avoid their fifth consecutive loss.

Delbert Love scored 20 points for Kennesaw State and Aaron Anderson had 14 points and 13 rebounds for his seventh double-double this season.

Markeith Cummings, this week’s Atlantic Sun Player of the Week, didn’t play for the Owls due to a coach’s decision.
