HIGH POINT, N.C. (AP) John Brown scored 10 of his team-high 16 points in the first five minutes, sparking High Point to a fast start that carried the team past Division III William Peace, 88-71 on Tuesday night.
Brown got to the basket for five layups as the Panthers took a 14-8 lead early and stretched it to 17-points, 49-32 by halftime. High Point got 30 of its 49 first-half points on layups and two more on a Lorenzo Cugini dunk.
The Panthers shot 67.9 percent from the floor (36 of 53) thanks in large part to how well the team got to the rim. They were just 1 of 9 from behind the arc.
