KENNESAW, Ga. -- Chase Fieler poured in 24 points and grabbed seven rebounds as Florida Gulf Coast led all the way in an 83-62 defeat of Kennesaw State on Saturday.

The Eagles (13-9, 7-2 Atlantic Sun) bounced back from a Thursday loss to Mercer that dropped them into second place in conference.

The Owls (4-18, 1-8) came as close as four points in the first half and seven early in the second, but FGCU had plenty of firepower, finishing the game at 53.6 percent shooting (30 of 56). Fieler's 24 points were his second-highest this season, Bernard Thompson added 16, Brett Comer 15 and Nate Hicks 10.

Comer connected with Hicks for three alley-oops, and Fieler lobbed a half-court alley-oop to Eric McKnight for a 77-56 lead. FGCU made nine steals, blocked four shots and forced 14 turnovers.

Willy Kouassi and Nigel Pruitt led the Owls with 15 points each.
