Anderson scored four of his 14 points in the run, Carter Wright finished with 18 points, Jalen Witherspoon 17 and Kevin Haynes 14. The Lions shot 52.9 percent, hitting 27 of 51 shots, and scored 32 from the free-throw line.
Larry Wideman scored 20 for Furman (4-5), hitting 5 of 10 3-pointers. The loss was Furman's first against a non-Division I school in 36 games, dating to 1997.
