Owls Rout Royals; Move to 3-1 On the Season



FAU shoots season high 54.7% from the field in 88-58 swathing

Last season, Florida Atlantic was exhausted after needing triple overtime play to slip past a scrappy NAIA-DII Warner University squad.

Tonight, the Owls (3-1) took the lead from the start, and never let up, routing the Royals 88-58 in handy fashion at FAU Arena.

“No one likes triple overtime games, we wanted to put them away early”, said guard Alex Tucker who was 4-of-4 from the free throw line, and finished with eight points.

With FAU leading early on, Warner tied the game at 10-10 before three straight jams by Kore White (one) and Brett Royster (two) made it 19-10 with 11:12 to play in the first period.

“We were really unselfish on the fast break, and our guards did a great job of passing”, said Greg Gantt who led all scorers with 20 points.

We have to get tighter on D, especially in the paint.

Any reason why? That just seems a lil strange.
