RICHMOND, Ky. (AP) Eric Stutz scored a career-high 23 points as Eastern Kentucky scored more than 100 points for the second straight game, pounding out-matched Cincinnati-Clermont 115-50 on Saturday night.

Stutz was joined by Jaylen Babb-Harrison who scored 22, Corey Walden 18 and Ja'Mill Powell 17 for the Colonels (3-0).

Eastern Kentucky was already up 58-24 by halftime against tiny Cincinnati-Clermont of the USCAA, but the Cougars (1-3) seemingly vanished after the break. The Colonels opened the second half on a 20-4 run until Clermont called time at 13:08, then went 11-0 after the Cougars huddled.

On Tuesday, Eastern Kentucky went off for 115 on Kentucky Christian, an NAIA school.

Tommy Hacker led Cincinnati-Clermont with 11 points, the Cougars hitting just 16 of 52 shots, making 32 turnovers.
