    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Ben Smith scored 17 points to lead Jacksonville in a 69-56 win over Savannah State on Tuesday night.

    Lehmon Colbert added 15 points and Travis Cohn had 11 for the Dolphins (9-8). Smith also dished out six assists and tallied four steals, while Marcus Allen grabbed nine rebounds.

    Rashad Hassan led the Tigers (9-10) with 19 points and Chris Linton added 10.

    The Dolphins, who led by one point at the break, trailed 32-31 to start the second half after Linton's jumper. That would be the Tigers' last lead, as Colbert scored six points in an 11-2 Dolphins run from that points to put the game out of reach.

    The Dolphins went 22-for-27 on free throws, while the Tigers hit just 8 of 18 from the line. Jacksonville also hit 7 of 16 shots from beyond the arc compared to a 2-for-10 mark for Savannah State.
