    JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (AP) -- Brad Nuckles had 23 points, 11 rebounds and was perfect from the line to help East Tennessee State beat Jacksonville 71-59 on Monday night.

    East Tennessee State (13-7, 7-1 Atlantic Sun Conference) jumped out to 32-16 lead at the half, including 11 points from Nuckles, who went 9-for-9 in free throws for the game.

    Courtney Pigram added 14 points and Mike Smith had 12 for the Bucs.

    Jacksonville (7-10, 3-4) warmed up after the half to shoot 51.5 percent from the field, including 24 points from the bench, but it wasn't enough to catch up.

    Reserve Derek Duggins led the Dolphins with 13 points, including 3-of-5 from 3-point range.

    The Bucs controlled the boards 45-33, led by Eryk Thomas with a career-high 12 rebounds.

    It was the third straight double-double for Nuckles.
