GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) -Amu Saaka scored 22 points to pace three Furman players in double figures and Darryl Evans handed out a career-high 11 assists in an 83-60 victory over Dartmouth on Saturday night.
Saaka scored eight points during a 19-6 Paladins run in the first half, giving them a 40-23 halftime cushion after they led just 21-17 at the 7:05 mark.

Jordan Miller added 11 points and six assists for Furman.
Guard Ronnie Dixon led Dartmouth with 14 points, while center Clive Weeden had 11 points and 11 rebounds.
