ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Brandon Goodwin scored 23 points with five rebounds and eight assists as Florida Gulf Coast beat UT Arlington 85-78 on Saturday afternoon.

Goodwin was 7 of 17 from the floor and 8 of 9 from the free-throw line for the Eagles (7-4). Christian Terrell and Dinero Mercurius added 16 points apiece and Zach Johnson 13.
