    Trailing 36-34 at the break, Naburgs hit two of his six 3-pointers as part of a 10-0 Stetson burst to open the second half. The Eagles regained the advantage with a 13-0 run and the teams exchanged the lead until the Hatters' final burst.

    With 173 career 3-pointers, Naburgs became Stetson's all-time leader.

    Bernard Thompson's 19 points led Florida Gulf Coast (19-10, 11-5), which has lost two straight.
