HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky. -- Adam Pegg scored a game-high 17 points and grabbed five boards to lift Stetson past Northern Kentucky 62-46 in Atlantic Sun Conference play Saturday night.
Pegg scored 11 points in the second half, and Stetson led by as many as 19 points in the period.
The Hatters shot 44 percent (11 of 25) compared to Northern Kentucky's 31.6 percent (6 of 19) in the second half.
Stetson trailed 15-14 in the first half before the Hatters went on 15-5 run, taking a 29-20 lead on Pegg's free throws with 4:27 left in the period. Stetson led at halftime 29-22.
Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
Guard Naz Mitrou-Long, whose 2015-16 season ended in December due to hip problems, has been granted a hardship waiver for the coming season, Iowa State said.
As the Sooners look to life without superstar Buddy Hield and his sidekicks, it's clear their unseasoned players will need to grow up fast.
