JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Brett Comer, Sherwood Brown and Bernard Thompson combined for 59 points as Florida Gulf Coast earned its fourth straight victory, an 81-78 win over Atlantic Sun Conference foe Jacksonville.
Comer scored 21, Brown 20 and Thompson 18 for the Eagles (16-8, 8-3), who set a program record for wins in a season as a Division I team and swept the season series with Jacksonville for the second straight year. The four-game, in-conference win streak is Florida Gulf Coast's longest as an A-Sun member. The team is averaging 84.8 points during that span.
The Eagles and Dolphins (12-12, 7-4) were part of a four-way tie with Mercer and South Carolina-Upstate atop the A-Sun standings entering Saturday.
Russell Powell's two free throws cut the Eagles' lead to 79-78 with 1:16 left, but the Dolphins missed two field goals and two free throws in the final minute.
Jacksonville's Jarvis Haywood had 16 points.
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.
