The Golden Panthers (15-18), playing their fourth game in four days, hung around until China Dow and Rowe scored four points each in an 8-0 burst that made it 56-43 with 5:37 left.

FIU, despite shooting 29 percent, was still within striking distance until MTSU made 6 of 8 free throws in the last minute.
