BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) - Nick King had 16 points and 11 rebounds, and made a pair of key free throws late to help Middle Tennessee hold off Florida Atlantic 61-57 on Saturday.

Giddy Potts added 13 points and four steals for Middle Tennessee (11-4, 3-0 Conference USA). Antwain Johnson chipped in 10 points.

Ronald Delph scored 17 points to lead FAU (6-9, 0-3), which has lost six straight. Jailyn Ingram had 11 points and Gerdarius Troutman 10.

Back-to-back layups from King and Tyrik Dixon stretched the Blue Raiders' lead to 57-50 with 2:15 to play. A 7-2 spurt, capped by Troutman's 3-pointer, pulled FAU to 59-57 with 13 seconds left. King made two free throws, and Justin Massey missed a 3-point attempt for the Owls to end it.

FAU shot 1 of 11 from distance, including 0 of 6 in the second half.
