LAS VEGAS (AP) - Christian Cunningham scored 19 points and added nine rebounds to help lead Jacksonville State to a 76-63 win over Northern Arizona at the final day of the Global Sports Classic on Saturday.

The win gives Jacksonville State (4-3) three straight following a three-game losing streak.

Malcolm Drumwright shot just 4 of 15 from the field but he hit all five of his free throws and finished with 14 points and six assists for the Gamecocks.

After leading by just 31-30 at the break, Jacksonville State took control in the second half. Cunningham made back-to-back layups to spark a 7-0 spurt to open the half. A Drumwright 3-point play made the lead 13 (50-37) and a Norbertas Giga layup on the next possession made it 52-37. The Lumberjacks (2-6) never seriously threatened down the stretch.

Ako Kaluna led Northern Arizona with 16 points.
