JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (AP/WSPA) β€” Damari Monsanto scored 22 points as East Tennessee State topped Furman 71-62 on Saturday.

Monsanto shot 6 for 8 from deep and added eight rebounds as ETSU bumped the Paladins from a share of second place in the Southern Conference. Ledarrius Brewer had 17 points for East Tennessee State, which earned its sixth consecutive home victory and trails streaking Wofford by a game.

Clay Mounce had 21 points and 12 rebounds for the Paladins, who have suffered back-to-back losses after being upset by VMI by a point in Wednesday. Mike Bothwell added 17 points. Noah Gurley had 13 points.

Furman looks to avoid a three-game losing streak when the Paladins take on UNCG Monday, January 25.
