DURHAM, N.C. (AP) Reggie Lewis scored 22 points and Amin Stevens had 15 points and grabbed 12 rebounds as Florida A&M ended a six-game losing streak with a 62-60 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference victory over North Carolina Central on Saturday.

Stevens, who had averaged 18 points in three games since regaining his academic eligibility, put the Rattlers (3-13, 1-1) ahead 57-54 with a layup with 3 minutes remaining, but Ebuka Anyaorah's 3-pointer for the Eagles (7-8, 1-1) tied it 16 seconds later.

Lewis' 3-pointer put the Eagles ahead to stay, 60-57, at the 2:21 mark and, after a turnover, Jeremy Dean's layup, with an assist from Stevens, made it 62-57.

Lewis was 6 for 10 from 3-point range in the game.

Anyaorah and Dominique Sutton scored 13 points each to pace North Carolina Central, which had won all five previous meetings between the teams.
