Halftime has arrived at Bender Arena. The student contest produced a winner — lay-up, free throw, 3-pointer — in less than 25 seconds and won some kind of clothing prize.

AU leads 41-30 thanks in large part to an 8-0 run at about the midway point of the first half.


The Eagles are shooting 62.1 percent from the field (18 of 29) and are outrebounding the leaping Leopards 14-9.

Derrick Mercer leads AU with 14 points and Garrison Carr has 10 points.
