North Florida vs Fla Gulf Coast

North Florida 88, Florida Gulf Coast 81


FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) - Parker Smith scored 23 points and hit 5 3-pointers, including a big one in overtime, to lead North Florida in an 88-81 win over Florida Gulf Coast Saturday.

After Jerron Granberry, who finished with 21 points for the Ospreys (9-8, 3-1 Atlantic Sun Conference), hit a 3-pointer to put them up 77-75 with 2:23 to play in regulation, the defenses took over. Neither team scored for the next 1:50, with both Smith and Granberry missing 3s while Florida Gulf Coast (6-9, 2-3) couldn't sink two free throws and then lost a turnover.

Brett Cromer had a layup for the Eagles with 32 seconds left to knot it at 77-all, but he couldn't finish the foul shot for the possible three-point play, sending the game into overtime.

Andy Diaz's layup to open OT was followed by Smith's 3-pointer to push the Ospreys' lead to 82-77, and they cruised from there.
