MACON, Ga. - As the lone Atlantic Sun Men's Basketball team in play on Sunday, FGCU made a dramatic second-half comeback to defeat FIU by eight in overtime behind stellar performances from Christian Terrell & Marc-Eddy Norelia.

Terrell produced his third 20-point game of the season as he connected on four three pointers and 7-of-15 from the floor, while Norelia added his season's fourth double-double on 13 points and 11 rebounds. Trailing by 13 at the 10-minute mark in the second half, FGCU went on a 14-0 run over the next 2:30 minutes to move into the lead.

A Demetris Morant dunk with seven seconds remaining evened the contest to force overtime, where the Eagles outscored the Golden Panthers, 13-4, led by five points from Terrell and four by Rayjon Tucker. FGCU returns to action in Alico Arena on Sunday, Dec. 13th against UMass.
