SEATTLE (AP) -- Todd Brown scored 14 of his 25 points in the first half, Troy Tabler added 16 and Wright State used a big first half to run past Belmont 82-73 on Sunday night on the final day of the round-robin Athletes in Action Classic.
Brown scored 12 points during a decisive first-half run that put the Raiders up by as many as 20. Cory Cooperwood's jumper started a 26-7 spurt that built Wright State's lead to 40-20 late in the half. The Raiders (2-1) shot nearly 60 percent in the first half and 57 percent in the game.
While Wright State built its lead, Belmont went more than 7 minutes without scoring. The Bruins came back in the second half but couldn't get closer than the final score.
Mick Hedgepeth led Belmont (1-2) with 19 points and Scott Sanders added 10.
