JACKSONVILLE, Florida — Josh Adeyeye scored a career-best 24 points and grabbed seven rebounds as he rallied Jacksonville in the second half to beat Stetson 71-69 Wednesday night.

The Dolphins hit 46.3 percent from the field, including 10 of 23 on 3-pointers.

Jacksonville led 36-33 at halftime but fell behind early in the second period due to cold shooting. Stetson pulled ahead on a 10-1 run to a 43-37 lead. Adeyeye helped bring the Dolphins back with six 3-pointers in the remainder of the period and they were up 69-63 with three minutes to play.
