JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) Travis Wallace turned in 24 points as North Florida won its third straight game, 84-70, over Lipscomb Monday in Atlantic Sun Conference action.

Beau Beech scored 17 points and Parker Smith 16 as the pair went 5 of 11 and 4 of 9, respectively, from 3-point range for North Florida (6-8, 2-0). Smith entered sixth in the country with 3.7 3-pointers per game. Will Wilson added 11 assists.

Malcolm Smith led the Bisons (5-7, 0-2) with 18 points and 13 rebounds for his second double-double this year.

The Ospreys' Travis Wallace snapped a 62-all tie with a jumper with 6:59 left to spark a 10-1 run, and Lipscomb never pulled closer than seven points after that.
