JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Aaron Bodager scored 18 points and four others reached double figure-scoring as North Florida defeated NAIA Webber International 109-64 Thursday night. The 109 points are a Division-I record for North Florida.
Sean Jowers (18 points) and Carlos Holey (10) sparked the Warriors (1-5) early, scoring eight each in the first half. The Ospreys opened the game in a Chris Davenport dunk and sped out 8-1. Webber International scrapped back as Jowers and Holey combined for three 3-pointers to tie at 18-18. But then came a nearly 13-minutes stretch of missed shots and turnovers while North Florida surged ahead 51-30 at halftime.
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.
