FAU (4-6) @ Troy (3-6)
Thursday, Dec. 18, 2008 - Trojan Arena (4,000)
8:00 p.m. ET

The Trojans

Have lost three-straight during a tough road schedule (sound familiar?) that had Troy playing at LSU (92-57), at Dayton (87-70) and at Middle Tennessee St. (81-53). Troy has played just two home games, losing to UAB (87-66) in their season-opener and beating Georgia State (68-63) during a three-game win-streak that had evened their season record at 3-3 on November 29. Troy shoots over 10 3-pointers per game which ranks 10th nationally.  Guard Michael Vogler entered the week averaging a staggering 8.2 assists per game, leading all NCAA players and backcourt teammate Travis Lee has made 42% (20-of-48) of his 3-point attempts.

No Strangers to one Another

FAU is much more familiar with Troy, with both schools playing in the Atlantic Sun Conference before making the recent move to the Sun Belt. FAU and Troy have met 21 times. Troy leads the all-time series 15-6. FAU has won only three times in 10 tries at the Trojan Arena, but have won 4 of the last 5 against Troy, including scoring a season-high 99 points en route to a six-point win at Troy last year (Feb. 27, 2008). Paul Graham III scored a career-high 27 points in that game on 9-of-15 shooting.  Look for big numbers again tonight if the Owls can get out and run.

Owl's Nest view of the game

FAU has not won on the road in conference play since last beating, guess who, Troy in February of this year.  Troy plays the style of ball that will allow FAU to run and put up some easy scores, something they missed against UD.  Game time.

FAU - 4

I'd be careful of that Frank Sinatra if I were Troy. I hear he has some serious game! Oh sorry wrong Rat Pack  ;)

My two favorite teams are FAU, and who ever is beating FIU!
