DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Adrien Coleman scored 21 points and grabbed 11 rebounds to bolster Bethune-Cookman in its third straight win 72-58 over Savannah State Monday night in Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference play.

The Wildcats led 28-26 at halftime and stretched the edge to 47-34 on Jackson's tip-in with 12:18 to play. Savannah State (17-11, 10-3) never pulled within single digits again.
