White, Royster Carry Owls to 61-59 Upset Over Mississippi State



Front court tandem scores 30 points; hauls in 17 rebounds

Florida Atlantic (4-4) traveled through a rainstorm on their way into Starkville, MS tonight while in the midst of a three game losing streak.

But they will leave under sunny skies, thanks to a 61-59 win over Mississippi State (4-1), with a hefty $80k paycheck to boot.

“We’re blessed, there’s no other way to describe it”, said Coach Mike Jarvis. “I think the kids got an incredibly well deserved victory.”

Size and speed overwhelmed the Owls early as the Bulldogs raced out to a 13-3 lead, eventually going up by as many as 13 with under 4:00 minutes to play in the first half.

However, FAU hunkered down to finish on a 9-2 run, as Shavar Richardson drained a three at the buzzer, and trailed 35-29 at intermission.
