Sherwood Brown and Eric McKnight scored 14 points apiece as Florida Gulf Coast defeated Miami 63-51 Tuesday night to post its biggest win in school history. Before the Eagles' first men's sellout, 4,552 fans at Alico Arena, Bernard Thompson added 13 points. Florida Gulf Coast (1-1) which is in just its second season of being NCAA eligible, lost by one point to Nebraska, Texas Christian and Southern Methodist last season before making a late run and reaching the Atlantic Sun Conference Tournament championship game. Miami (1-1), led by Shane Larkin with 14 points, took a 15-5 lead but didn't make a field goal for an 8:44 stretch. Spurred by a 23-2 run, Florida Gulf Coast led 32-25 at halftime. Behind Larkin's shooting, Miami tied the game at 39. However, the Eagles responded with a 10-3 run and a 49-42 lead after a three-point play by McKnight. The Hurricanes couldn't recover.
