FIU hangs on for 59-54 win over Middle Tennessee

MIAMI (AP) Adrian Diaz scored 17 points, 11 of them in the second half, to lift Florida International to a 59-54 win over Middle Tennessee on Thursday night.

Daviyon Draper added 14 points, including the go-ahead jumper, while Dennis Mavin sank 10 of his 12 free throws and finished with 12 points for FIU (14-16, 7-10 Conference USA), which snapped a three-game skid.

Trailing by nine early in the second half, FIU took the lead with a 15-2 run capped by a 3-pointer from Ray Rodriguez to make it 40-36 with 11:30 left. Middle Tennessee (15-15, 8-9) tied it at 52 with a pair of free throws from Perrin Buford with 4:21 to go, but Draper quickly hit a jumper at the other end to put the Golden Panthers back on top for good.
