GREENWOOD, Miss. (AP) - Marcel Mosley scored a career-high 34 points and Arkansas-Pine Bluff routed Mississippi Valley State 94-75 on Friday.

Mosley was 13 of 20 from the floor and 8 of 13 beyond the arc. Ghiavonni Robinson had 16 points and Tevin Hammond added 13 for UAPB (12-20, 9-9 Southwestern Athletic Conference). The Golden Lions shot 59 percent as a team and went 17 of 29 on 3-point attempts.

Mississippi Valley State (6-25, 5-13) was led by Jeffrey Simmons with 22 points. Isaac Williams had 16 points and Jabari Alex contributed 10.

Mosley’s 3-pointer with 5:08 left in the first half gave UAPB an 11-point lead but Williams and Simmons made baskets for MVSU just before halftime to trim the deficit to eight at 41-33 at the break.

Robinson drilled a 3-pointer on UAPB’s first second-half possession and it never relinquished a double-digit lead after that.
