BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) — Kaj-Bjorn Sherman scored a career-high 28 points and grabbed 15 boards as UTSA took advantage of a Florida Atlantic scoring drought in the second half, beating the Owls 74-59 on Saturday night.

Sherman got 12 of his points at the free-throw line, and accounted for half of UTSA'S 30 points before the break. Jeromie Hill scored 19 points and grabbed 13 rebounds for his fourth straight double-double.

FAU (8-13, 1-9 Conference USA) went ahead 44-43 on Justin Massey's three-point play with 13:20 remaining, but a scoring drought over a 7:03 span allowed UTSA to take an 11-point lead. The Owls were unable to recover, and the Roadrunners (12-10, 6-5) shot a perfect 5-for-5 at the line to end it.

Marquan Botley scored 19 points to lead FAU, and Jackson Trapp added 13, all in the first half. The Owls now have lost their last five games.
