FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Bernard Thompson scored 21 points and Chase Fieler became Florida Gulf Coast's all-time leader in rebounds as the Eagles ran away from East Tennessee State for a 90-62 victory on Saturday night.

A.J. Merriweather's layup for ETSU (9-10, 2-4 Atlantic Sun) made it 6-6 just over 3 minutes into the game before FGCU scored 26 of the next 29 points over the ensuing 9:03 to blow the game open. The Buccaneers never again got closer than down 18.

The Eagles (12-8, 6-1) took a 42-22 lead into the break and led by 28 on five separate occasions.

Fieler, who finished with eight points and 10 rebounds, now has 597 career rebounds, breaking Sherwood Brown's record of 589.

Eric McKnight scored 14 points while Nate Hicks and Filip Cvjeticanin added 10 apiece for the Eagles.

Rashawn Rembert led ETSU, which shot 29.4 percent from the floor, with 18 points.
