Late rally falls short at home against Denver

Turnovers and poor shooting by FIU, coupled by the efficient shooting by the Pioneers, paced Denver to a 38-14 lead at the break. Fueled by the scoring of seniors Jeremy Allen and DeJuan Wright, the Panthers made a push to cut the deficit to three late in the second half. In the final five minutes, Denver’s 7-0 run ended the Panthers comeback, as the Pioneers held on for a 77-63 victory at U.S. Century Bank Arena.
