LEXINGTON, Va. (AP) -- John Brown scored 21 points as High Point rallied past Virginia Military Institute 78-67 Tuesday night to win its seventh straight game and claim sole possession of its first Big South Conference North Division title.

The Panthers (16-10, 11-3), who swept the season series for the first time since 2007-08, trailed 24-11 at the 4:44 mark. A 40-14 run spanning both halves catapulted High Point ahead, with the Panthers shooting 69.2 percent (18 of 26) in the second half.

After the Keydets clawed back to 66-60 with 3:36 left, High Point answered with a 10-2 run to put the game away.

Dejuan McGaughy scored 12 points, hitting 3 of 6 3-pointers, and Adam Weary added 11 points for the Panthers, who defeated VMI 96-69 on Jan. 23.

Stan Okoye scored 22 points, D.J. Covington 18 and Brian Brown 11 for the Keydets (11-14, 6-7), who have lost four straight.
