JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Parker Smith scored 18 points and Charles McRoy had 14 to lead North Florida to a 72-47 victory over Florida A&M on Thursday.

Travis Wallace and Ray Rodriguez had 12 points each for the Ospreys (3-4) in their lone home game in a 12-game stretch.

The Rattlers (1-6) were led by Reggie Lewis with 13 points.

North Florida opened the second half with a 7-2 spurt for a 46-32 lead on David Jeune's layup 1:42 in and pushed it 59-36 on Wallace's layup midway through the half.

The Ospreys' lead never dipped below 19 points from there.
