NASHVILLE, Tenn. —

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Garrison Mathews scored 37 points and Rob Marberry added 12 points and 10 rebounds to help Lipscomb pull away late in the second half for a 98-83 season-opening win over Division III Emory on Friday night.

Mathews made 11 of 21 field-goal attempts, including four 3-pointers, and 11 of 15 free throws. Michael Buckland had 13 points, nine rebounds and eight assists, while Eli Pepper and George Brammeier scored 10 points apiece for Lipscomb.

Marberry hit a jumper midway through the first half to spark a 9-0 run that made it 32-25 and the Bisons never again trailed. Emory's Lawrence Rowley hit two free throws to make it 73-all with 7:56 to play, but Brammeier tipped in a missed 3-pointer, Buckland hit two free throws and Marberry made a layup before Mathews scored six-consecutive points to give Lipscomb a 12-point lead with 5:16 left.
