BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Southern set an NCAA record by scoring the first 44 points of the game en route to a 116-12 rout of Champion Baptist College on Monday.

The Jaguars (4-9) broke the all-divisions record that used to be held when Seton Hall scored the first 34 points against Kean College on Nov. 19, 1998. They did not set a record for margin of victory. Long Island University beat Medgar Evers 179-62 on Nov. 26, 1997.

Tre Lynch scored 27 points to lead Southern. Calvin Godfrey had 17 points and 15 rebounds, Trelun Banks had 21 points, Frank Snow had 10 rebounds and Christopher Hyder had 10 assists.

Champion Baptist, which finished 3-for-44 from the field (6.8 percent), did not get on the board until Kris Connor made two free throws with 5:10 left in the first half. The score was 57-6 at halftime.

The Tigers are an independent member of the Association of Christian Colleges, located in Hot Springs, Ark.
