FIU blew out to a 14-4 lead on FAU before trading the rebound for the turnover or forced shot at the offensive end of the court. The Owls closed to 20-17, hung that close for four and a half minutes, pulled even 25-25 on Raymond Taylor's three-pointer from the Turnpike, then took the lead on a pair of Greg Gantt free throws. Gantt usually kills FIU, but this afternoon, it's forward Jordan McCoy. McCoy, off the bench, has four rebounds and a game-high 12 points in 15 minutes.
Dominique Ferguson has 10 points to lead FIU in scoring. Brandon Moore has five rebounds, but also two fouls, the most of anyone in a loosely-called game.
