Special to The Breeze ( , Cape Coral Daily Breeze

The FGCU men's basketball team (6-2) started the game on a 27-0 run and was never threatened as the Eagles won their fourth-straight game Wednesday night, cruising to a 115-61 win over Webber International (3-3) at Alico Arena to conclude the Homewood Suites FGCU Shootout.

The 115 points are the fourth most in a game in program history (since 2002-03; record: 123) and the 2nd-most in the Division-I era (since 2007-08; record: 120).

The Eagles shot 65 percent (26-40) from the floor in the 1st half, building a 63-21 halftime lead after holding edges in points in the paint, 42-14, points off turnovers, 20-4, and fastbreak points, 20-2. The 63 points are the most in an opening half for FGCU in the D-I history of the program, surpassing the 57 the Eagles tallied the last time they played Webber (Jan. 5, 2016).

Christian Terrell had a double-double in the 1st half with 16 points and 10 rebounds - his second double-double of the year and fourth of his career. He finished the night with 18 points, leading seven FGCU double-figure scorers as the Eagles shot a blistering and season-best 55.6 percent from the floor (45-81).

Joining the senior guard with a double-double was fellow backcourt mate Brandon Goodwin with 14 points and a season-best 10 assists in just 25 minutes of action.

Zach Johnson scored 16, Christian Carlyle netted a season-best 13 points, Darnell Rogers tallied a career-establishing 11, while RaySean Scott Jr. and Ricky Doyle each delivered 10.

Webber International, a Babson Park-based school (Orlando area), was led offensively by Garrett Woodmansee with 15 points. Johnathan Childs and Tommie Luke each added 12 points for the Warriors.

FGCU will remain at home and face Middle Tennessee (4-1) on Saturday, Dec. 2, at 7 p.m. The Eagles and Blue Raiders - who have both won NCAA Tournament games the previous couple of years - faced each other on Nov. 21 in Murfreesboro, with Middle Tennessee claiming an 85-72 victory
