The Knicks won; 15 rebounds; 22 points, 20 of them in the second half; a 71-60 FIU win over Rice in the Panthers' first ever Conference USA game.
Yeah, Thursday was a happy day for senior forward Tymell Murphy.
Freshman Jason Boswell set a school record as he went five for five from the line, stretching his streak to 27 consecutive free throws. Cameron Bell held the previous record, 24 in 2011-12. Dennis Mavin put in 16 points with nine boards.
FIU had only 10 turnovers against Florida A&M and six against Rice. They'll need to keep up that improvement Saturday at Louisiana Tech.
