Powered by a second half surge, FAU defeated the Palm Beach Atlantic Sailfish to continue its hot start to the season.

The Sailfish (1-5) kept up with the Owls (5-1, 0-0 Conference-USA) early on, trading baskets in a game that saw them within three at the half.

It was a different story in the second half, however.

FAU caught fire in the second period, scoring 15-straight to turn what was a tie game into a 56-41 lead. From there the Owls didn’t let up, holding their double-digit lead to the final buzzer.

Forward Jailyn Ingram led the charge, stuffing the stat sheet to the tune of 23 points, 11 rebounds and three assists. He led FAU in each of those statistical categories.

Guard Michael Forrest added nine points, including eight in the first half to keep FAU ahead despite a solid opening effort from the Sailfish.

The Owls return to the Burrow on Sunday at 3 p.m. when they face off against Florida Gulf Coast.
