MIAMI (AP) Osasumwen Osaghae tied his career high with 22 points and blocked a shot with less than four seconds remaining as Florida International upended Western Kentucky 81-76 on Saturday.

Jared Savage tied a season high with 20 points and had seven rebounds for the Hilltoppers (14-8, 7-3). Taveion Hollingsworth added 15 points. Josh Anderson had 14 points and 10 rebounds.

Western Kentucky had a five-game win streak broken on Thursday and Saturday fell to FIU for just the ninth time in 43 games. The Hilltoppers rallied from 13 points down and came within 78-76 when Hollingsworth grabbed a defensive rebound and raced full court to score on the fast break with 43 seconds remaining.

Daye answered with a bucket in the paint for FIU with 13 seconds left and the Panthers survived three WKU tries in the last six seconds - one swatted by Osaghae, the national leader in blocked shots.
