SBC Tournament Thread: FAU (8) vs MTSU (1) In Game 3




Florida Atlantic draws the 8th seed heading into this weeks Sun Belt Conference tournament after having been afforded help with the loss of UNO to ULL, and UALR defeating ASU.

They will face MTSU this Wednesday at 1:30PM in the first round.

If the Owls defeat MTSU, and they could face the Panthers again in another a heated match-up on Thursday; providing FIU (4th seed) knocks off ULL (5th seed).

A printable bracket is available Here

The Owls were swept by MTSU during the regular season in Murfreesboro:

Game I    7-2

Game II   5-4

Game III  14-6

Based on his showing in game II, it is likely that Barry Rooks could get the start, as he went 7 1/3 innings, giving up only 2 earned runs in the 2nd contest which MTSU won in the bottom of the ninth on a walk off homer.

All of FAU's postseason games at Troy can be heard live, free of charge, on www.fausports.com. Steve Bishop will call the game from Troy. Fans can also follow the scoring live via GameTracker.

Additionally, the Sun Belt Conference will be offering a paid live video feed on www.sunbeltsports.org.

Tough opponent to draw in the first round, do we have enough pitching to give ourselves a chance?

We need a quality start form who ever Coach Mac decides on starting against the Blue Smurfs Puppies.

Barry Rooks gets the nod to pitch the tournament opener against the Blue Raiders.

And Rooks gives-up a lead-off walk to start things off, followed with a fielding by DelGuidice to put two men on early for the Blue Raiders - 1 out.

Another walk puts another Blue Raider runner on the base path.

And with a double pushes two more runs across  ::)

Tough start for the Owls - MTSU 3 FAU 0, still only one out - runners 3rd & 2nd.

The Raiders score one more in the 1st to take an early 4 run lead.

The Owls need to answer here.
