JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. -

Hunter Harris led four in double figures with 25 points and Lester Wilson posted a double-double in East Tennessee State's 89-75 come-from-behind victory Saturday over Atlantic Sun rival North Florida.
 
Jarvis Jones added 19, Rashawn Rembert had 12 and Wilson finished with 15 points and 10 rebounds for ESTU (6-15, 4-4), which beat North Florida at home for the eighth straight time.
 
The Ospreys (8-14, 3-6) led 47-33 at intermission but made just four of 11 shots and committed five turnovers over the first 10 minutes of the second half as ETSU rallied to tie it 57-all.
 
Rembert's 3-pointer gave ETSU a 60-57 advantage, then after two Baebae Daniels free throws cut it to one, Harris hit two at the line that ignited a 29-16 Buccaneers run over the final 8:41.
 
Parker Smith scored 26 points for North Florida, which shot 27.6 percent (8 of 29) in the second half.
