BOCA RATON, Florida — Warren Hall scored 24 points including the game-winner — and five players reached double figures — as NAIA Warner College never trailed while defeating Florida Atlantic 75-72 Tuesday night.
Hall, who went over 1,000 career points last week, made 8 of 16 shots, including 2 of 3 from 3-point range for Warner (5-1).
FAU (0-2) narrowed what had been a double-digit gap most of the game into a 72-72 tie in the final 1:13. Marquan Botley started the final run with a 3-point play and added four more free throws. Nick Rutherford hit a 3-pointer.
But Hall buried a jumper and was fouled, converting the 3-point play with two seconds remaining. FAU missed a final 3-point try as time expired.
Jeantal Cylla paced the Owls with 18 points, C.J. Turman scored 16 points with 11 rebounds for his first career double-double.
