AP - Sports

COOKEVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Ned Cox scored 15 points Tuesday night as Evansville opened a big halftime lead, then eased to a 62-50 victory over Tennessee Tech in nonconference play.

Cox, who led all scorers and hit three 3-pointers while dishing six assists, led the Aces (3-2) to a 33-17 halftime lead. D.J. Balentine, who came off the Evansville bench to score 11 points, hit three treys himself.

In the second half, Tennessee Tech (3-1) outscored Evansville 33-29 but that wasn't nearly enough.
