Tucker, McCoy Post Career Highs in 85-76 Win Over Wisconsin-Milwaukee



Owls take game two of tournament action behind improvement at the line; perimeter defense

Despite winning, the Owls struggled from the free throw line last night at just 23-of-42.

Trying to make sure it wouldnít happen again, Coach Mike Jarvis had the team put in some extra time at the line today before tip-off. And it paid dividends.

For the first time since the 1990-91 season FAU is off to a 2-0 start with an 85-76 win over Wisconsin-Milwaukee in day two of the Athletes In Action Classic.

ďAnytime you beat a team from a really good conference, like they are from, thatís a big win. Not only for us, but itís a big win for the league", said Jarvis.

The Owls never trailed in the contest, and connected on 33-of-46 attempts from the line; 20 of which came in the second half. Conversely, UWM free throw shooting suffered, as they capitalized on just 15-of-34 attempts.
