    MIAMI -- Rakeem Buckles scored 18 points, including a pair of free throws with 7 seconds to play, grabbed 11 rebounds and swiped four steals as Florida International beat East Carolina 68-64 Saturday.

    Jerome Fink's layup with 1:53 remaining gave FIU (10-9, 2-2 Conference USA) a 66-62 lead. Michael Zangari hit a pair of free throws to pull ECU within two with 33 seconds left and, after a series of missed free throws by both teams, Akeem Richmond missed a 3-point shot for the Pirates. Buckles grabbed the rebound and was fouled by Zangari before icing the game at the line.
