TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) Jermaine Ruttley scored 28 points on 10-of-15 shooting to lead last-place Florida A&M to a 64-57 comeback win over Savannah State Thursday in its regular season finale.

Quentin Bastian scored 11 points for the Rattlers, who are not eligible to compete in the postseason Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference tournament this year

The Tigers, who entered the game tied in 11th place with Morgan State, led 16-11 in the first half despite scoring one basket in six minutes. Jorge Rosa's bucket pulled FAMU within 20-18, but Savannah State's Saadiq Muhammad dunked with 3:56 left and the Tigers led 28-23 at halftime.
