LAS VEGAS -- Brett Comer scored 24 points with five assists and Florida Gulf Coast defeated Florida A&M 77-68 Sunday at the Las Vegas Classic.

Comer scored 18 points in the second half, and his layup tied the game at 57. Comer's steal led to a Bernard Thompson tip-in giving Florida Gulf Coast a 59-57 lead and the Eagles led the rest of the way. Another steal and an assist by Comer led to a Filip Cvjeticanin dunk. FGCU then led 67-59 with 4:33 to play.
