Hood was 8-of-11 shooting, including 3 of 4 from 3-point range, for Samford (8-16, 6-5 Southern Conference). Raijon Kelly and Tim Williams each added 17 points and Clide Geffrard Jr. had 11.

Samford shot a season-best 65.9 percent (29 of 44) from the field, knocked down 7 of 17 3-pointers and drained 14 of 17 free-throw attempts.

Samford also had a season-high 20 assists with Kelly's six leading the way.
