Leading by five early in the second half, FAU launched a 9-0 run that pushed the lead to double-digits. The Owls’ lead never fell below a dozen after that.
Freshman Jaylen Sebree came off the bench and scored a career-high 21 points to lead the Owls.
“Jaylen has presented a problem (for opposing defenses) because he’s letting the game come to him, he’s attacking in space and he’s shooting the ball well, which makes him a tough matchup,” coach Dusty May said.
FAU led by as many as 18 points in the second half.
The victory is the Owls third in four games to open the season.
