      FORT MYERS, Florida — Brett Comer scored 10 of his 16 points in the second half and Jamail Jones sank the winning bucket to lift Florida Gulf Coast to a 54-53 comeback win over Kennesaw State on Thursday night.

      Comer dropped a layup with 1:35 left to make it 51-50 but Orlando Coleman drained a 3-pointer at the other end to put Kennesaw State, which had led by as many as 11, back on top. Demetris Morant's free throw made it to a one-point game and Bernard Thompson's steal set up Jones' winning bucket with 32 second left. Coleman missed his final shot, a 3-pointer.

      Julian DeBose contributed 11 points and Thompson had 10 for FGCU (20-7, 10-1 Atlantic Sun), which won its ninth straight despite shooting just 34.5 percent from the floor and hitting only 2 of 24 from beyond the arc.

      Nigel Pruitt led the Owls (9-19, 3-8) with 19 points and Coleman finished with 11.
