Cool story about the FAU/FGCU game


Cool story about the FAU/FGCU game

Here: http://www.news-press.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20071209/SPORTS/712090418/1010/SPORTS

key bits:

"BOCA RATON — Florida Gulf Coast University jouneyed across Alligator Alley for a men's basketball game Saturday night.

Unfortunately, the Eagles left their shooting eyes back home.

Scoring came at an excruciatingly slow place throughout the game for FGCU, much to the delight of Florida Atlantic's boisterous student section. There was plenty for them to cheer, as FGCU fell behind early and never really threatened in a 69-55 defeat.

A good time was had by all at FAU Arena — except the busload of FGCU fans and locals who came in support of Eagles guard Casey Wohlleb, a Boca Raton native.

The students stomped and yelled and chanted things such as "Haircut! … Haircut!'' to Eagles shaggy guard Rob Quaintance.

The arena includes a video screen, on which fans were pictured and encouraged to flex their muscles or kiss each other during timeouts. Seven bare-chested young men spelled out "Xavier," showing their love for Owls freshman guard Xavier Perkins.

But the Eagles didn't get any love. Especially from the rims."
