SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) - Jodd Maxey and Torrey Craig each posted a double-double as South Carolina-Upstate defeated Lipscomb 83-71 Thursday night.

The Spartans are tied for first in the Atlantic Sun Conference with Jacksonville and Florida Gulf Coast.

SC Upstate led 11-9 before Craig hit a 3-pointer to spark a 9-0 run. The Spartans led 32-25 at the break and stretched their lead to as much as 16 in the second half.
