AUBURN, Ala. (AP) Chris Denson scored 15 points to lead Auburn to a 78-54 home victory over winless Jacksonville State on Tuesday evening.

KT Harrell added 14 points on 4-of-7 shots for Auburn (2-1). After allowing 72 second half points against Northwestern State in its last contest, the Tigers' defense forced 14 turnovers and held Jacksonville State (0-5) to just 35 percent from the field.

Auburn, which never trailed in the contest, put the game out of reach with a 19-2 run early in the second half. Freshman Dion Wade provided a spark for the Tigers off the bench, hitting back-to-back 3-point shots during the run.

D.J. Felder led all scorers with 16 points in the loss for the Gamecocks, who fell to 0-13 all-time against the in-state Tigers. Felder was the only Jacksonville State player to score in double figures.

Although their shooting percentage was 48 percent, the Tigers converted 23 of their 31 free throw attempts in the win. Auburn out-rebounded Jacksonville State 47 to 33 and scored 44 points in the paint.

Jacksonville State scored 19 points in the first half, and its 54 points were a new season-low.

Harrell added a 3-pointer to Wade's two in the second half. Auburn started the game 0-of-5 from beyond the arc.

Twelve different Tigers saw action as Auburn recorded 32 bench points. Malcolm Canada scored 10 points off the bench and netted 6-of-7 attempts from the free throw line.
