Miami, FL (AP) - Eric Frederick scored 19 points as Florida
International snapped a five-game losing streak and defeated
Florida A&M 87-82 on Wednesday night.

The Panthers (5-6) took the lead for good during a 17-4 run
midway through the second half. Jeremy Allen scored eight straight
points during the spurt and finished with 14.

The Rattlers (5-7) got within a point, 78-77, on Avery Moore's
3-pointer with 2:28 remaining. But the Panthers outscored the
Rattlers 5-0 in the next 1:46 behind Allen's field goal, two free
throws from Phil Gary and one free throw by Marvin Roberts.

Moore led the Rattlers with a game-high 20 points, 16 of them in
the second half.

The Rattlers erased a six-point deficit early in the second half
with a 12-0 run. Moore keyed the spurt with consecutive 3-pointers
and Yannick Crowder's basket with 13:14 remaining capped the run
for a 54-48 Florida A&M lead.
