JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP)—Parker Smith scored 23 points, including knocking down six 3-pointers, to lead North Florida past Florida Gulf Coast 68-62 on Monday night.

Jerron Granberry added 14 points, hitting four 3s of his own for the Ospreys (13-13, 7-6 Atlantic Sun Conference), who were 11 of 19 from long distance (57.9 percent).

The Eagles were just 5 of 19 from beyond the arc (26.3 percent) in the loss.
