(AP) — Johnell Davis scored 17 points, Alijah Martin and Brandon Weatherspoon each had 16 and No. 24 Florida Atlantic beat Temple 80-68 on Thursday night in a battle of the Owls.

Boyd and Vladislav Goldin each finished with 12 points. “Weatherspoon is an emotional leader,” Florida Atlantic coach Dusty May said. “It was awesome to see him getting his production back up and I thought...

Martin makes last-second free throws to lift No. 24 FAU over Tulane, 85-84

NEW ORLEANS — Alijah Martin hit two of three free throws after being fouled by Tulane’s Jaylen Forbes on a desperation 3-point attempt that was not close to going in with less than a second left, and No. 24 Florida Atlantic escaped with a 85-84 victory over the Green Wave on Thursday night. Martin missed the second free throw, but made the third to secure a result that helped FAU avoid what would have been a second straight loss after being upset at Charlotte — where they fell 70-68 on free throws with 1.7 seconds left. Nick Boyd tied a career high with 21 points to lead FAU (12-4, 2-1 American...

Davis’ 35 points lead No. 14 FAU to 96-95 win over No. 4 Arizona in double OT

By MARK ANDERSON (AP Sports Writer) LAS VEGAS (AP) — With Florida Atlantic and Arizona going back and forth Saturday, forcing one overtime and then a second, it didn’t feel like an early-season tournament game. These teams could wind up facing each other again in March with much more on the line than the Desert Classic. If so, they will have a difficult time topping the No. 14 Owls’ 96-95 victory over No. 4 Arizona for FAU’s first win over a top-10 team. Johnell Davis scored 35 points, just one short of his career high, and had nine rebounds. “It felt like a high-level basketball game,” FAU...

By CHUCK KING (Associated Press) BOCA RATON — Johnell Davis scored 24, and Vladislav Goldin added 17 points and 12 rebounds to propel No. 13 Florida Atlantic to a 90-74 victory over Charleston in the finale of the Field of 68 Tipoff. Coming off a performance without a field goal against Liberty in the Tipoff opener, Davis took over the Owls’ offense in the final 12 minutes. Davis, a junior, also grabbed 10 rebounds.

No. 13 Florida Atlantic, led by Martin’s 20 points, cruises and hands Liberty its first loss of the season

BOCA RATON — Alijah Martin scored 20 points and Vlad Goldin added 18 points and seven rebounds as No. 13 Florida Atlantic cruised past Liberty 83-58 on Thursday night in the opening game of the Field of 68 Tipoff Classic. The Owls extended a 15-point halftime lead to 29 in the second period and handed Liberty (6-1) its first loss of the season. Playing at home for the first time since its Nov. 18 upset loss to Bryant, FAU (6-1) overcame a sluggish shooting start by pounding the ball inside — where Liberty had no answer for Goldin and Martin. The duo combined for 24 of the team’s 44 first-half...
