    BOCA RATON, Fla. -- Paul Graham III scored 18 points and Florida Atlantic held Louisiana-Lafayette without a double-figure scorer in a 63-47 win on Saturday night, the Owls' first Sun Belt Conference win of the season.

    Brett Royster added 14 points and Shavar Rishcardson had 12 for the Owls (5-18, 1-10), who snapped a 13-game losing streak.

    The Owls shot just 39.5 percent from the field (17 of 43) in the win, but the Ragin' Cajuns (7-14, 4-6) hit 26.9 percent (18 of 67).

    Florida Atlantic also hit 25 free throws versus nine for the Ragin' Cajuns, along with going 4-for-8 from beyond the arc. Louisiana-Lafayette hit just 2 of 38 from 3-point range.

    Louisiana-Lafayette's Travis Bureau, who came in shooting 41.9 percent from beyond the arc, made just 1 of his 10 attempts from long range.
