BALTIMORE (AP) -- Anthony Winbush made a pair of free throws with 11.1 seconds left and Robert Olson blocked a 3-pointer with 6 seconds left to seal Loyola's (Md.) 77-74 win over Florida Gulf Coast on Sunday.

After Florida Gulf Coast's Bernard Thompson's 3-pointer made it a one-point game with 12 seconds left, Winbush was fouled on the inbounds play. Christophe Varidel then had a chance to tie it with 9 second to play, but it was contested by Olson.

Erik Etherly paced the Greyhounds (4-1) with 15 points. Dylon Cormier added 14, Olson 13 and Shane Walker 10 for the Greyhounds.

Loyola scored 20 points off of 17 turnovers in its fourth straight win.

Thompson and Varidel led the way for the Eagles (2-4), scoring 17 points each off the bench. Eddie Murray added 11 for Florida Gulf Coast, which lost its fourth straight -- all on the road.
