    LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Dontaye Draper scored 19 points and Drew Hall added 16 as Charleston beat Florida Atlantic 90-73 in the Billy Minardi Classic on Tuesday night.

    The Cougars (4-3) will face host Louisville in the final on Wednesday. The Owls (3-4) will take on Middle Tennessee in the consolation game.

    DeAndre Rice led FAU with 21 points, but the Owls couldn't overcome a sluggish first half in which the Cougars built a 22-point lead.

    Charleston never trailed and converted 22 FAU turnovers into 28 points. Renardo Dickerson had 15 points for the Cougars while Josh Jackson added 13 off the bench.

    Quinton Young added 14 points for FAU, but the Owls shot 32 percent from the floor in the first half and couldn't keep up with the Cougars.
