RICHMOND, Ky. (AP) -- Adam Kunkel scored 22 points and Belmont hit twelve triples to beat Eastern Kentucky 83-70 Saturday night.

Lachlan Anderson paced four Colonels in double figures with 15 points. Senior Ty Taylor and junior JacQuess Hobbs both finished with 11.

EKU (14-15, 11-5 OVC) returns to action at Murray State next Thursday. Tip is scheduled for 8 p.m. ET.
