MIAMI, Fla. (AP) -Alex Galindo scored 19 points in his season debut Monday to lead Florida International to a 63-55 triumph over Fordham in the FIU Holiday Tournament.
Freddy Asprilla scored 12 points and pulled down 10 rebounds and Nick Taylor added 10 points for FIU (5-10), which snapped a six-game losing streak in the final game of the three-team event.
Galindo, a transfer from Kansas and FIU's leading scorer the last two seasons, missed the first 14 games due to a dislocated ankle. He scored 15 of his 19 points in the first half while connecting on four 3-pointers.
Fordham (2-9) was led by Trey Blue's 18 points.
Both teams struggled in the first half as neither shot better than 30 percent with FIU taking a 25-19 lead at the break.
Tennessee-Martin defeated FIU 77-76 in overtime and Fordham 82-70 to win the FIU Holiday Tournament.
