JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (AP) -- Kinard Gadsden-Gilliard scored 18 points and grabbed 12 rebounds and East Tennessee State picked up its first win of the season, beating Samford 89-75 in a First Bank and Trust Roundball Showcase match-up Tuesday night.

Lester Wilson scored 20 points and Jalen Riley netted 16 for ETSU.

Samford (1-4) led 37-34 at the break however ETSU led on five occasions going in.

ETSU never looked back and outscored the Bulldogs 55-38 in the second half as Riley hit 10 of 10 from the penalty line in the final minutes.
