BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) Brandon Weatherspoon scored 14 points and No. 21 Florida Atlantic defeated Western Kentucky 70-63 on Saturday to remain undefeated at home.
The victory extended FAU's winning streak to a program-record 20 games, which is now the nation's longest. The Owls' 21 victories on the season ties their Division I record set in 2010-11. Western Kentucky (11-11, 3-8 Conference USA) has lost five straight.
"We're taking some haymakers from really good teams," FAU coach Dusty May said. "Hats off to Western Kentucky. They played hard. They played determined. And we made the plays we needed to down the stretch."
