CHICAGO (AP) — Femi Olujobi had a season-high 16 points on 6-of-7 shooting and Eli Cain scored 15 to help DePaul beat Florida A&M 65-50 Monday night.
Jalen Coleman-Lands added 13 points for DePaul (5-1), which has won five consecutive home games to open the season for the first time since 2006-07.
Justin Ravenel made two 3-pointers and Rod Melton Jr. added another 3 and a layup during an 11-0 run that gave Florida A&M a 35-33 lead with 16 minutes left. But Coleman-Lands answered with a 3, made two free throws and, after M.J. Randolph made a jumper on the other end, hit a jumper to make it 40-37 and DePaul led the rest of the way.
Cain scored seven points and Olujobi added four during an 11-2 run that made it 54-43 with eight minutes to go and Olujobi hit three free throws 90 seconds later to push the lead into double figures for good.
