Owls defense

Can anyone who is a basketball analyst tell us why the defense is struggling like it is? FAU is last in defense in the Sunbelt. On the flip side is 3rd in offense against all opponents and 1st in offense against other Sunbelt teams.

Someone posted here it is the perimeter defense that is lacking which is sort of odd since the inside guy on FAU is only 6-8 and has to go up against 6-10 and 6-11 centers.

Owls defense

we dont not have "defensive minded" players for the most part…Crews and Alarcon are about it…we do have exteremly talented offensive players, who, through thier playing careers, have gotten by on scoring more than the other team to win…you can see this in alot of NBA teams especially…

SEE DALLAS MAVERICKS

anyway, you will notice next year that this will not be the case…Rex went after more "complete" players who play on both sides of the ball:

Royster
Hernandez
Nwoji
Owens

Im not saying we arent a good team…i am merely saying the "style" of play of most of the guys leans heavily towards the offense…this will also change as they learn under Rex "how" to play defense…

one thing is for sure, they have made huge strides the last three games…last night was a good example…
