Scott Saunders scored 15 points to lead a balanced scoring attack as Belmont routed North Florida 91-59 on Saturday to remain unbeaten in Atlantic Sun Conference play.

The Bruins (13-3, 5-0) have won eight of their last nine games, the only loss coming by one point against Tennessee. All three of Belmont's losses have come against Southeastern Conference teams, two to Tennessee and one to Vanderbilt.

A layup by Jon House with 11:24 remaining in the first half broke a 16-16 tie and Belmont never trailed again. The Bruins led 44-30 at halftime and 69-38 with 10:32 left to play.

Ian Clark scored 11 points, and Blake Jenkins, Kerron Johnson and J.J. Mann had 10 each for Belmont, which shot 58.3 percent (28 of 48) and had eight players score at least eight points.

Jerron Granberry scored 18 points for the Ospreys (5-10, 2-2), who have lost seven of their last eight.
