North Florida defeats Jacksonville 70-64

The Associated Press

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) Jerron Granberry scored 20 points and Parker Smith 17 as North Florida broke its school record for wins in a season with a 70-64 victory over Jacksonville on Friday night.

The Ospreys (16-15, 10-8 Atlantic Sun Conference) had won 15 games three times in their 19 previous seasons. Last year they reached the mark for the first time in six Division I seasons.

North Florida never trailed. The Ospreys led 33-17 after Granberry closed the first half with a pair of 3-pointers, and they never led by fewer than six points the rest of the way.

Terry Galvin scored 17 points to lead the Dolphins (8-21, 6-12), who missed a chance to clinch the eighth and final berth in the Atlantic Sun tournament. They still can advance if Stetson loses to South Carolina Upstate on Saturday.

Delwan Graham added 13 points and Glenn Powell 12 for Jacksonville.
