Cosey added eight assists, six rebounds and three steals while knocking down three 3-pointers for the Colonels (1-0), who are coming off the winningest season in program history in 2012-13.

Orlando Williams contributed 14 points off the bench, and Corey Walden managed 11 points while going perfect from the free-throw line on six attempts.

FIU (0-1) was led by double-double performances from both Tymell Murphy (14 points, 10 rebounds) and Rakeem Buckles (13 points, 12 rebounds). Murphy also added three blocks, while eight of Buckles' 12 boards came on the offensive glass. Raymond Taylor scored 11 points and made good on 3-of-4 shots from beyond the arc.

The Colonels dominated the first half, shooting 48 percent from the field, including 7-of-15 from 3-point range, to go into the break with a 45-24 lead.

EKU continued to shoot a high percentage after halftime, going 12-of-24 from the field, as it led by as many as 30 late in the game.
