Owls extend Dolphins' losing streak to 24

Rodney Webb scored 20 as Florida Atlantic beat Jacksonville 85-76 Saturday in their final regular-season game.

Jacksonville, which did not qualify for the Atlantic Sun tournament, finished with 24 consecutive losses, the nation's longest losing streak.

Florida Atlantic still can finish in a first-place tie for the regular-season crown if Belmont and Lipscomb lose their final conference games today. The Owls can finish no worse than a tie for third. The conference tournament begins Thursday at East Tennessee State.

Jacksonville's Matt Kampfe hit the game's first shot, a 3-pointer, but Florida Atlantic responded with seven consecutive points and never trailed after that.

DELAWARE ST. 61, FAMU 58: Tracey Worley had 17 points and the visiting Hornets shot 43 percent from 3-point range to seal it.

The Rattlers cut it to three with just under three minutes to play, but Delaware State kept them at bay from the free-throw line.

Brian Greene led Florida A&M with 13 points. Rome Sanders added 11 points and a game-high eight rebounds, and Jon Mason and Tony Tate each scored 11.

STETSON 75, GARDNER-WEBB 66: Gabe McMillen had a career-high 19 points and seven assists for the host Hatters.

McMillen didn't miss a shot all night, making two 3-pointers, six other field goals and a free throw.

E.J. Gordon led all scorers with 21 points to help Stetson win its eighth straight. It matches the school's longest win streak, set in 1982-83.

TAMPA 56, BARRY 47: Marcus Borders and Shane Thorson each scored 14 for the visiting Spartans, who used a 14-3 run at the start of the second half to take a lead they would not relinquish.
