BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) - Tony Mitchell had 24 points and eight rebounds to lead North Texas to a 61-59 overtime victory over Florida Atlantic on Saturday night.

The Mean Green's Roger Franklin's layup at the buzzer tied it at 53 in regulation.

Greg Gantt led the Owls (10-10, 5-4) with 22 points, and Stefan Moody chipped in 12.

Florida Atlanta led 30-25 on Gantt's two free throws 2:07 into the second half, but North Texas caught the Owls at 39-all on Tony Mitchell's dunk with 7:48 left. It was close the rest of the way.

North Texas' P.J. Hardwick made two free throws for a 55-53 advantage 21 seconds into overtime, and Florida Atlantic never caught up. Hardwick's free throw with 21 seconds left gave North Texas the final margin.
