Blogging the Bracket 2009-10 Sun Belt Preview...


Blogging the Bracket 2009-10 Sun Belt Preview...

Loving the fact that nearly everyone is picking us to finish at the bottom of the pile this year so far…browsed through Lindy's, Blue Ribbon, and Athlon, and we are in the cellar in all but one, who has us third.

Objectively, truly believe there will be some "heart-break" going on for SBC opponents with some upsets from the Owls - withstanding the "Homer" accusation for saying so ;)

On a side note:

Overall, this is without question the best overall defensive team - bar none - that FAU has ever put on the floor. No more embarrassment in that category.

Lower scoring affairs are on assuredly on the horizon for opponents - book it.


"Florida Atlantic (last NCAA: 2002) Mike Jarvis begins his second season in Boca Raton completely overshadowed by Isiah Thomas' arrival at archrival FIU. The Owls were terrible last season without Xavier Perkins (academics) and Carlos Monroe, who did manage to average 11.4 points and 6.6 rebounds a game despite dealing with foot and eligibility problems. And they may not be much better this season, as they only return two starters, 6-8 forward Brett Royster (7.1 ppg, 5.3 rpg) and 5-11 point guard Alex Tucker (6.1 ppg, 4.8 apg). Jarvis will be expecting big things out of 6-2 sophomore Shavar Richardson, who averaged almost 12 points and four boards a game from the bench. He has a great chance to fill the void left by Paul Graham III's (18.5 ppg) graduation.  Jarvis' team will be young, as he brought in seven freshmen and only one JC transfer this offseason."
