Wayne Martin scored six of his team's last nine points, including the game-winning layup with 32 seconds remaining as St.Francis (New York) defeated Florida Atlantic 59-57 Monday.

Martin, who finished with 12 points also grabbed the rebound of a missed 3-pointer by FAU's Jackson Trapp with three seconds left. Jalen Cannon and Ben Mockford each scored 15.
