Florida Atlantic upset by NAIA Division II school Northwood

BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) - Rollie Massimino still has a knack for

the upset.

Jonathan Dunn scored 42 points and Northwood - an NAIA Division

II school - beat Florida Atlantic 85-81 in overtime Thursday night,

another surprising win for the coach best known for leading

Villanova past Georgetown for the NCAA championship in 1985.

Thierno Agne added 11 points for Northwood, which gave up an

overtime-forcing layup to Florida Atlantic's Greg Gantt with 1

second left in regulation, but never trailed in the extra period.

Gantt led FAU with 17 points, while Alex Tucker and Brett

Royster both scored 16.

Massimino, 75, is entering his fifth season at Northwood. He is

the only coach in program history, averaging 26 wins in his first

four seasons at the tiny school based in West Palm Beach.
