KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Terry Reynolds scored 23 points in his college debut to lead Toledo to a 59-43 victory over Southeast Missouri State Friday in the opening game of the Energia Systems Thanksgiving Tournament.

Reynolds scored 16 points in the second half, and all of his game-high five assists came in the second half to help Toledo pull away.
