NEWARK, N.J. (AP) Christian Terrell led five players in double figures with 17 points on 5-of-6 shooting from both the field and free throw line and Florida Gulf Coast won its 12th straight, beating NJIT 75-70 on Thursday night.

Abdul Lewis' 3-pointer with 4:02 left tied the game at 65 after the Highlanders rallied from a 13-point hole in eight minutes. Lewis score 12 of NJIT's points during a 26-13 run.
