SPARTANBURG, S.C. -- Chase Fieler made a layup with 2 seconds left in overtime to lead Florida Gulf Coast to a 72-71 victory over South Carolina Upstate in an Atlantic Sun Conference game on Thursday night, snapping the Spartans' four-game winning streak.
The Spartans had tied it a 64-all on Ty Greene's 3-pointer with 20 seconds left in regulation.
Florida Gulf Coast's Bernard Thompson led five double-figure scorers with 19 points, Fieler scored 17, Sherwood Brown had 14 points and 11 rebounds, Eric McKnight chipped in 12 and Brett Comer 10 for the Eagles (12-6, 4-1), who are off to their best start in A-Sun play since joining the league in 2007.
Torrey Craig had 24 points and 14 rebounds for the Spartans (8-9, 2-1), and Greene scored 20 points.
SC Upstate trailed 38-29 at the half but pulled to 53-51 on Babatunde Olumuyiwa's layup with 5:53 left.
Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
Guard Naz Mitrou-Long, whose 2015-16 season ended in December due to hip problems, has been granted a hardship waiver for the coming season, Iowa State said.
As the Sooners look to life without superstar Buddy Hield and his sidekicks, it's clear their unseasoned players will need to grow up fast.
