JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Aloys Cabell had 17 points in his first career start, leading four double-figure scorers for Jacksonville as the Dolphins picked up their first win of the season 70-57 over Samford on Friday night.

Glenn Powell added 14 points, while Chris Davis and Keith McDougald added 11 apiece for the Dolphins (1-2).

The Bulldogs (0-2) went up 9-6 on Raijon Kelly's jumper with 14:44 left in the opening half. But Russell Powell hit back-to-back jumpers for a Jacksonville lead, helping spark a 22-7 run that put the game out of reach before halftime.

Jacksonville led by 17 points at the break and won despite being outscored by Samford 32-28 in the second half.

The Dolphins outshot the Bulldogs 50 percent (27 of 54) to 38.9 percent (21 of 54) from the field.

Jeffrey Merritt was the only player in double figures for Samford, scoring 22 points.
