BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — Triston Chambers had 20 points, including six 3-pointers, and Samford cruised to an 83-63 win over Florida A&M on Thursday night.

Chambers hit 7 of 10 from the field and made 6-of-9 3s. Justin Hopkins and Josh Sharkey scored 12 points apiece. Sharkey added eight assists while Christen Cunningham had 12.

Chambers hit two 3-pointers during a 10-0 run that put Samford (8-4) up 52-40 with 16:31 to play.

Samford, which has won five of its last six games, hit 11 3-pointers and had 26 assists on 30 field goals.
