BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) - Greg Gantt scored 19 points and Florida Atlantic played stifling defense, defeating NAIA opponent Warner 83-50 Sunday in a nonconference matchup.

The game was close until the midway point of the first half, when FAU went on a 36-9 run over the course of 12 minutes. Gantt, who capped the spurt with a 3-pointer, had 15 points during the run and Moody added eight.

At one point during the scoring spree, the Owls got 11 unanswered points.
