ASHEVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Charlie Reddick and Bobby Austin scored 15 points apiece and Furman defeated Samford 75-66 Friday night in the first round of the Southern Conference tournament.

The Paladins (15-15), who lost to Samford 55-49 on February 18, also got 12 points and seven rebounds from Brandon Sebirumbi. But it was a huge 3-point differential that gave Furman the victory and Samford (11-19) its fourth loss in the last five games.
