    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Dallas Moore scored 21 points with four assists as North Florida sustained and early lead to beat Mercer 89-80 on Wednesday night.

    The Ospreys mounted a 13-4 run in the game's first five minutes to lead 43-29 at the break. Nesbitt's 3-pointer at 9:20 in the second period extended the North Florida lead to 20, 66-46. From there, the Ospreys -- who led by double digits throughout most of the game -- never had to look back.
