    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - JD Notae scored a career-high 30 points and Jalyn Hinton grabbed a career-high 14 rebounds and Jacksonville beat NAIA Middle Georgia State 81-60 on Thursday.

    Despite the final margin, the Knights trailed just 37-36 at halftime and tied it at 44 with Roshaun Milline's jumper with less than 17 minutes left.

    Notae started the second half with four layups, one of which was a 3-point play, and his lay-in after Milline's jump shot put Jacksonville (5-10) ahead for good. Notae scored 14 of the Dolphins' first 19 points after intermission and Jacksonville built a 56-47 lead. Notae finished 11 of 16 from the field and Devin Harris scored 17 points for the Dolphins. Damien Sears added 10 rebounds for Jacksonville.

    The Dolphins ended a three-game losing streak and are 2-6 in their last eight games.
