CHARLESTON, Ill. (AP) — Casey Teson scored 17 points, including five of Eastern Illinois' 13 3-pointers, Montell Goodwin added 14 points, including three 3s, and the Panthers cruised to a 101-49 win over Division III Fontbonne on Monday night.

Demetrius McReynolds scored 12 for EUI (8-4), which has won four of its last five games, including three in a row.

The Panthers, who came in ranked 10th in the country in turnovers forced (16.03 per game), converted 16 first-half Fontbonne turnovers into 18 points and took a 54-26 lead into the break. Eastern Illinois shot 50 percent from the field, including 9 of 17 from 3-point range, in the first half.
