    MIAMI -- Jeremy Smith scored six of his eight points in a 1:12 span late in the game to help Division II West Georgia stun Florida International 57-54 on Tuesday night.

    Smith's scoring streak started after Freddy Asprilla put Florida International (3-2) ahead 48-46 on a layup with 2:54 remaining.

    West Georgia (2-3) then took over the lead 49-48 as Smith made a three-point play. Smith then hit a free throw, and drove the court for a layup after a steal to go ahead 52-48 with 1:16 left.

    Florida International had a chance to tie the game with 8.7 seconds left, but a Nick Taylor 3-pointer bounced off the rim.

    Doug Daniels scored 13 points for West Georgia, and Chris Miller-Williams added 10 in the O'Reilly Auto Parts CBC Classic.

    Nikola Gacesa scored a game-high 17 points for the Golden Panthers, followed by 14 points and nine rebounds from Asprilla.
