JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Beau Beech and Dallas Moore scored 15 each as North Florida survived a scare from Bethune-Cookman winning 68-64 on Saturday night.

North Florida (6-7) shot nearly 60 percent in the first half and led 43-32 over the Wildcats who were looking to snap 10-game losing streak and a 16-game road losing streak dating back to last season.

A layup by the Wildcats' Travis Elliot with 11 minutes to play in the second half, tied the game at 51 and the game remained tight until Dallas Moore hit three free throws, a jumper and a layup putting the Ospreys back on top by nine with 3 minutes left. Bethune-Cookman (2-13, 0-2, Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) wasn't finished as Clemmye Owens hit two 3- pointers, tying the game at 64, but UNF salvaged the win landing four free throws in the final 10 seconds.

Travis Elliot scored 14 points for the Wildcats.
