FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) - Sherwood Brown scored a game-high 17 points to lead Florida Gulf Coast over East Tennessee State 67-43 Thursday night in an Atlantic Sun Conference contest.

Eric McKnight had 13 points and Chase Fieler added 12 to help Florida Gulf Coast (17-8, 9-3) win its fifth straight game and clinch a berth in the A-Sun tournament.

Ahead 33-21 at halftime, Brown's basket 30 seconds after the intermission sparked a 21-10 run for the Eagles, capped by Brett Comer's layup to make it 54-31 with 9:03 remaining.
