TALLAHASSEE -- Terrence Woods sat out a half because of the flu but scored 19 as Florida A&M beat Maryland-Eastern Shore 92-89 in double overtime Saturday.

Tee Trotter scored 41 for the Hawks (0-12, 0-3 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference). Woods entered early in the second half with the Rattlers (5-6, 1-2) trailing by nine.

Maryland-Eastern Shore led 44-34 at halftime, but fell behind with 50.8 seconds left. Florida A&M took the lead 69-68 on O.J. Sumter's jumper. Woods added a free throw, but Didier Socka's layup with .5 remaining forced overtime.

Tied at 80 entering the second overtime, the Hawks looked likely to seal their first win.

Trotter scored nine as the Hawks led 89-84 with 1:33 left. But Jemaine Hill made two baskets, including a 3-pointer, and a free throw to seal it for the Rattlers. Hill led Florida A&M with 20 points.

HOWARD 63, B-CC 58: Kyle Williams scored 14 and Ron Williamson added 13 as the visiting Bison snapped a three-game losing streak. Howard (3-9, 1-2 MEAC) limited the league's leading scorer, forward Richard Toussaint, to nine points. Toussaint entered averaging 18.8.

The Wildcats (1-8, 1-2) are off to their worst start since going 1-27 in 1997-98. Howard was 4-of-5 from the free-throw line in the final 58 seconds to preserve a lead that was as large as 50-38 in the second half.

UCF 76, TROY ST. 61: Ray Abellard scored 26 and Dexter Lyons had 13 rebounds to lead the visiting Golden Knights. Abellard hit six 3-pointers. Ed Dotson scored 16 and Lyons 14 for Central Florida (10-5, 1-0 Atlantic Sun Conference). Greg Davis scored 13 to lead the Trojans (12-4, 3-1), who were outrebounded 47-28.

MERCER 86, FAU 79: Wesley Dukes scored 18 to lead the host Bears. Mercer (8-3, 3-0 ASC) led 43-33 at halftime and pushed the lead to 15 early in the second half, holding a double-digit lead for 17 of the final 20 minutes. Earnest Crumbley had 15 points and eight assists to lead the Owls (4-11, 0-3).

FLA. SOU. 75, ECKERD 65: Matt Story scored 19 to lead the visiting Moccasins (15-0, 2-0 SSC). Marcus Bryant led the Tritons (12-2, 1-1) with 17 points and 12 rebounds.

TAMPA 44, BARRY 39: After scoring 14 first-half points, the host Spartans (10-4, 1-1 SSC) held Barry (11-3, 1-1) to two second-half field goals. Marty Harrington led UT with 18 points.
