Florida Atlantic vs Little Rock

UALR 65, FAU 62

  •  

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Will Neighbour scored 24 points, including two free throws with less than 2 minutes left that gave his team its first lead, and UALR erased a 22-point deficit to beat FAU 65-62 on Thursday night.

Neighbour was 7 of 10 from the field and also pulled down 11 rebounds. Kemy Osse added 12 points, and his put-back with 35 seconds left put the Trojans (13-9, 7-4 Sun Belt) ahead 64-62. UALR forced a miss and a turnover before John Gillon's free throw completed the scoring.

Stefan Moody led the Owls (10-11, 5-5) with 24 points, and Greg Gantt chipped in 13.

FAU rode a 19-0 first-half run to a 35-19 halftime lead, and the Owls still led 52-36 after Moody's jumper with 11:44 to play. But the Trojans came alive after that, outscoring FAU 29-10 the rest of the way to improve to 11-1 at home this season.
