Jacksonville edges rival North Florida 63-62 in OT

Delwan Graham had 15 points and 13 rebounds, including the game-winning free throws with less than a second remaining in overtime as Jacksonville edged rival North Florida 63-62 Wednesday night.

The Dolphins (13-6, 7-3 Atlantic Sun Conference) trailed by six at halftime, by nine immediately after the break and never led by more than two points. But Graham helped Jacksonville secure a 49-36 rebounding advantage that led to 15 extra shots, and the Dolphins beat the Ospreys (8-13, 5-5) for the 10th consecutive meeting and the 12th time in the last 13.

Neither team shot free throws well, with Jacksonville making 11 of 26 and North Florida 14 of 28. But Graham was perfect when he needed to be, and helped snapped the Ospreys' three-game winning streak.

North Florida's Parker Smith also had 15 points to lead his team.

Ayron Hardy added 14 and Travis Cohn 13 for Jacksonville.
