Noah Horchler had 12 points and 14 rebounds and UNF used a balanced scoring attack to defeat Trinity Baptist 85-58 Saturday night at UNF Arena.

 

The Ospreys had seven players score at least eight points and pulled away in the second half despite shooting poorly from behind the arc. UNF attempted 42 three-pointers in the game and made just 11 (26 percent).

Guard Ivan Gandia-Rosa led the Ospreys with 14 points and Osborn Blount came off the bench to contribute 11 points and three steals.

Marcus Dixon scored a game-high 16 points for Trinity Baptist, which trailed only 41-32 at halftime. But the Ospreys kept the Eagles, a member of the National Chrisitan College Athletic Association, scoreless for nearly a five-minute stretch in the second half to create some distance.

Only 10 free throws were shot in the game, with each team shooting five.

It was the third victory in four games for UNF, which started the season 0-6 and has played three opponents in the top 11 in the polls.
