RUSTON, La. (AP) - Jacobi Boykins scored a career-high 26 points, including six 3-pointers, to lead Louisiana Tech to a 74-53 win over Maryland-Eastern Shore on Sunday.

Boykins was 8 of 11 from the field and missed just two from long range. Erik McCree added 14 points while grabbing nine rebounds and Derric Jean had 14 points with a career-best 11 assists for Louisiana Tech (3-2), which shot 51 percent from the field.

Leading by just four at the break, the Bulldogs broke away midway through the second half with a 13-3 run over a nearly five-minute span to make it 56-41 with 9:43 to go.

The run was bookended with 3-pointers from Jacobi Boykins and included buckets from Joniah White and DaQuan Bracey and gave the Bulldogs a double-digit advantage it clung to the rest of the way.

Bakari Copeland led Maryland-Eastern Shore (0-6) with 14 points and Ryan Andino had 10.
