JACKSONVILLE, Ala. (AP) - Tarvin Gaines scored 23 points and Jacksonville State led wire-to-wire in a 70-59 victory over Morehead State on Saturday night in Ohio Valley Conference play.

The Gamecocks started the game with an 11-0 spurt. After the Eagles (11-13, 5-5) got within four, at 18-14, Gaines scored seven points in another 11-0 burst to pull away.
