BROOKINGS, S.D. -- Tim Kempton had 20 points and eight rebounds and Corey Schaefer scored a career-high 16 to lead Lehigh over Texas Southern on Monday night, a 67-63 win in the Legends Classic at South Dakota State.

Aaric Murray scored 28 with nine rebounds for Texas Southern (2-5). Murray was 7 of 11 from the field after the intermission and scored 22 of his 28 points to lead the Tigers' second half charge. His dunk with 3:58 remaining cut the gap to 52-51.
