JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Jalen Nesbitt rebounded a Dallas Moore miss with three seconds left and followed up with a jumper as time expired to give North Florida a 67-66 win over Northern Kentucky Thursday night.

Jordan Jackson and Tyler White each scored field goals to give the Norse a three-point lead, 66-63 with 39 seconds left to play. Travis Wallace got to the basket for a layup to cut that lead to a single point with 17 seconds left.

Todd Johnson missed a free throw attempt with 16 seconds left that would have padded the Northern Kentucky lead and Wallace hauled in the rebound.

Moore finished with 21 points to lead the Ospreys (12-11, 6-4 Atlantic Sun). Charles McRoy added 15 points and pulled down eight rebounds and Chris Davenport contributed 11 points.

Northern Kentucky (8-14, 4-6) was led by Todd Johnson and Tyler White, who scored 18 and 17 points, respectively.
