    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Parker Smith made 8 of 12 3-pointers and finished with 32 points as North Florida beat Kennesaw State 81-72 Saturday in an Atlantic-Sun Conference game.

    Trailing 38-32 at halftime, Kennesaw State (2-15, 1-4) opened the second half on a 21-17 run, and took the lead, 53-49 behind Markeith Cummings' layup with 11:35 left to play.

    North Florida answered when Wallace converted consecutive baskets, capping a 17-3 run to put the Ospreys back on top 66-56 with 6:06 remaining.
