KENNESAW, Ga. -- A.J. Merriweather scored 19 points and pulled down 10 rebounds as East Tennessee State won its conference opener 71-55 at Kennesaw State on Saturday.

The Buccaneers scored the first 10 points of the second half and Kennesaw State (3-13, 0-3) could not erase the deficit, trailing by double digits for the remainder of the game. Merriweather had 12 second-half points.
