    BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) -- Travis Peterson had 13 points and 11 rebounds to help lead Samford to a low-scoring 41-34 win over Jacksonville State Thursday night.

    At the half, the Gamecocks (2-6, 0-1 Ohio Valley Conference) led 16-13, but the Bulldogs (3-4, 1-0 OVC) took the lead a few minutes into the second period and never gave it up again.

    Also scoring 13 points and snagging six rebounds, Joe Ross Merritt was the only other double figure scorer for Samford.

    Will Ginn led Jacksonville State in scoring with 12 points, while Erik Adams had a double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds.

    Both teams had lackluster shooting with Samford at 34.9 percent and Jacksonville State at 25.5 percent. Despite leading their respective teams in scoring, Peterson and Ginn both had made four of 11 shots. Merritt was 5-of-14 in shooting.
