PLAYA DEL CARMEN, Mexico (AP) - Andy Diaz, Matt Sauey and Parker Smith scored 11 points apiece as North Florida defeated Morgan
State 59-52 on Wednesday.
     
The Ospreys (3-3) used a smothering defense - holding the Bears
to 32.3 percent shooting (20 of 62) - to win the championship game
of the Cancun Challenge - Mayan Division bracket.
     
Morgan State (2-3) shot only 1 of 11 from 3-point range.
     
North Florida was 22 of 56 (39.3 percent) from the floor, but
made 7 of 16 3-pointers.
     
Morgan State used a 16-4 run spanning the end of the first half
and beginning of the second to lead 31-29. Jimmy Williams' layup
and a Smith 3-pointer pushed the Ospreys ahead for good.
     
DeWayne Jackson scored 12 points and Kevin Thompson had 10
points and 10 rebounds for the Bears, who outrebounded North
Florida 44-31.
     
Jerron Granberry, who had eight points and seven rebounds for
North Florida, was named Tournament MVP.
