BEREA - Danny Noll scored 19 points to lead four Centre College players in double figures as the Colonels defeated Berea 80-67 on Tuesday night.
Centre (2-1) shot 51 percent from the field to win in its first game following a nine-day layoff.
The Colonels hit eight of 19 shots from 3-point range and 27 of 53 overall.
"We moved the basketball and hit shots, and a lot of it was because of our passing," Centre coach Greg Mason said. "Offensively, things flowed at a good rhythm."
Noll was 7-for-14 from the field, Matt Nestheide scored 18 points, T.C. Thomason had 15 and Thomas Britt had 14 for Centre.
Mason said he was also pleased with the Colonels' assist-to-turnover ratio, which was 17 to 14. Nestheide led the team with six assists.
