MOBILE, Ala. -- Augustine Rubit posted his second straight double-double and 11th of the season to power South Alabama past Sun Belt Conference-foe Florida International 60-58 Sunday for its third straight win.
Rubit finished with 13 points and 12 boards, Antoine Allen 11 and Barrington Stevens 10 for South Alabama. Barrington's third 3-pointer of the game put South Alabama ahead 57-56 with 3:29 left to play.
FIU (11-9, 6-5) had a chance to tie it but the Panthers missed their next three shots. Conner stole the ball from Frink on the Panthers' final possession as time expired.
Frink had 12 for FIU, which had won seven of their last eight games.
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.
