BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) — Jesse Hill scored 15 points, Ronald Delph had 13 points and eight rebounds, and Jeantal Cylla added 10 points and 11 boards to lead Florida Atlantic past NAIA-member Webber International 77-57 on Wednesday night.

Webber International was scrappy throughout and had a single-digit deficit at 53-45 with 10:27 to play.

FAU (4-6) led 38-30 at halftime. But Jonathan Childs' dunk at the 14:46 mark brought the Warriors to within 42-40. The Owls went on an 8-0 run capped by Delph's jumper with 11:36 to play. Hill made a pair of free throws to make it 55-45 and FAU controlled the game the rest of the way.

Jovany Deuces led Webber with 13 points and Cody Carden and Joseph Serrano each scored 10 points. Deceus buried a 3 in the first half to give the Warriors their final lead at 13-10.
