MIAMI – The Barry Buccaneers hung tough with the FIU Panthers for 22 minutes, before the Panthers pulled away late for a 68-38 exhibition win in women's basketball action at the U.S. Century Bank Arena on Friday night.

The Panthers led 30-25 at the half after the Bucs shot a very respectable 9-of-20 from the field in the first half. Barry knotted the game at 30-30 with just 2:07 gone in the second period by going 5-of-6 from the free throw line.

But the Bucs hit just 4-of-18 from the field the rest of the way and made just one more trip to the line as the Panther defense clamped down.

FIU's Jerica Coley led all scorers and rebounders with 17 points and 10 boards on the night, also chipping in with game-high marks of six assists and four blocks, and adding two steals. Finda Mansare chipped in with 12 points. Tyler Hardy led the Bucs with eight points and five rebounds.

Barry opens the regular season on Friday, Nov. 9 at the West Florida Tip-off Classic in Pensacola, Fla., against the Georgia Southwestern Hurricanes.
