— NORFOLK, Va. — D.J. Woodmore scored 25 points and Chris Teasley had 21 to to power No. 2 Virginia Wesleyan to an 85-64 victory over Frostburg State in college men’s basketball Sunday afternoon.

Chris Astorga added 18 points for Wesleyan (5-0), which overcame a 37-point game by Frostburg State guard Christian Smith.

The Bobcats (3-4) trailed by 10 on two occasions in the first half, but a late surge capped by a jumper by Jackson cut the Marlins lead to 31-27 at halftime, and a shot by Kwambina Coker gave FSU a 41-39 lead with 15 minutes to go.

Jackson, who has led the Bobcats in scoring in all seven games, was 13 of 27 from the field and 11 of 12 from the foul line. His 37-point game is the ninth-best single-game total in school history, and the most since Scott Kerr had 41 points in a game during the 1990-91 season.
