BOCA RATON, Fla. -- Ramon Cintron scored 16 points to lead four players in double figures as Middle Tennessee State beat Florida Atlantic 73-56 in a Sun Belt Conference game on Saturday night.
Stephon Moody had 17 points and Greg Gantt 13 for the Owls (11-13, 6-7), who had won four of their past five at home.
Middle Tennessee State shot 55.3 percent from the field (26 of 47) to Florida Atlantic's 40.8 (20 of 49).
From a 45-41 advantage with 12:10 left in the game, the Blue Raiders pushed ahead 54-43 with 7:13 to go on two free throws by Knight, and the Owls never got closer than nine points the rest of the way.
College basketball coaches across the country will hit the recruiting trail hard in July to target the Class of 2017's top prospects. Which players are the nation's top programs targeting?
The Tar Heels could lose Justin Jackson and Kennedy Meeks after next season. Coach Roy Williams has nearly every top-10 2017 prospect on his board.
In a decade at Ole Miss, Andy Kennedy has seemingly worked wonders with limited talent at a program that has rarely had success historically.
