    FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Deonte Alexander scored a career-high 29 points and Lipscomb scored the first 11 points of overtime to upset Florida Gulf Coast 87-78 Thursday night in Atlantic Sun Conference action.

    The Bisons (7-10, 2-4) handed Florida Gulf Coast (12-8, 4-3) its first home loss of the season.

    Alexander's 29 points came on 11-of-19 shooting from the floor, including six 3-pointers in 11 attempts.

    Florida Gulf Coast led by 13 points in the first half before Lipscomb went on a 15-2 run to tie it at 56-56. The teams were still tied at 70-70 in the last 43 seconds of regulation. But Sherwood Brown (20 points, 10 rebounds) missed a 3-point shot for the Eagles and Alexander's layup rimmed out as time expired.

    Lipscomb's 11 opening points in overtime clinched it.

    Stephen Hurt and Malcolm Smith scored 16 points apiece for Lipscomb. Chase Fieler also had 20 for the Eagles.
