GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) -Darryl Evans scored 18 points and Bryson Barnes added 11, leading Furman past Samford 63-58 on Monday night.
Evans was a perfect 4-for-4 from beyond the arc and all three of Justin Dehm's field goals were 3-pointers for the Paladins, who finished 8-for-15 from long range (53.3 percent).
The Bulldogs were just 6-for-21 from 3-point range (28.6 percent).
In a back and forth game, Josh Davis had a layup to put Samford up 46-44 with 10:44 to play. But Dehm hit all his 3-pointers in a 14-4 Furman run that made the difference, and the Paladins held on despite hitting just one field goal in the last 4 minutes.
Furman (10-10, 4-5 Southern Conference) outscored Samford by one at the break and 32-28 in the second half.
Bryan Friday scored 16 points to lead the Bulldogs (9-11, 3-5), while Trey Montgomery had 13 and Josh Davis added 12.
