KENNESAW, Ga. -- Rakeem Buckles scored 20 points and hauled in a game-high 11 rebounds and Florida International held off a late Kennesaw State rally to win 66-58 Sunday.

The Golden Panthers (1-2) shot 42.6 percent from the field and had four starters score in double figures. The game was closely contested until FIU used a 14-4 run to hold a 57-46 advantage with less than six minutes remaining.

The Owls (0-3) eyed a late rally, cutting the deficit to four with 1:25 remaining on two baskets by Orlando Coleman.

FIU responded with a 3-point dagger from Raymond Taylor and Tymell Murphy hit a late free throw to seal the win.
