FAU completes regular season sweep of Blue Raiders to remain a perfect 8-0 in conference play
In what was a defensively played contest by both teams, Florida Atlantic came out the winner, knocking off Middle Tennessee tonight 62-51 at FAU Arena.
Neither team shot too well, or took very good care of the ball. Collectively, the squads combined for just 20% from long range on a 4-of-20 showing.
But the Owls took command on the glass, and made baskets when they had to.
“When you play Middle Tennessee you are in for a battle; they come out and they get after you”, said Coach Mike Jarvis afterwards. “It wasn’t pretty, but we’ll take it.”
The win completes a regular season sweep of the Blue Raiders and marks the first time the Owls (16-6, 8-0) have done so.
It also ties a program record for the most consecutive wins (eight) set back in the 1989-90 season, FAU’s second year on the court.
