BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) -Greg Gantt scored 20 points, leading four Florida Atlantic players in double figures, as the Owls defeated Louisiana-Monroe 74-61 on Saturday night.
Brett Royster added 13 points, Raymond Taylor had 12 and Sanchez Hughley and Shavar Richardson finished with 11 apiece for the Owls (7-9, 3-2 Sun Belt Conference). Alex Tucker also chipped in with 10 assists.
Richardson led the Owls with three 3-pointers as they finished 8-for-18 from beyond the arc (44.4 percent) in the game.
The Warhawks were just 3-for-12 from long range (25 percent).
The Owls opened the game on an 8-0 run, bookended with 3s from Gantt and Taylor, and never looked back.

FAU has won back-to-back games since dropping five straight, and the Warhawks are on a two-game skid.
