im going to go with:

Nwoji
Graham
Parmer
Royster
Monroe

MTSU is bigger…think Rex will revert to the bigger line-up…

line is +7.5 FAU…which was the same line for USA…….

MTSU is more of a grind it out team…i dont believe they have a pure shooter…which is good for us as of late!

BUT, we will still eb challenged in other familiar areas…

Los will probably have another tough night on the offensive side, but i expect him to rebound alot more than last game at FIU…

Let's Hope Sammy and Sean put up 20 a piece…that'll do it! ;D

Re: FAU vs. Middle Tennessee Tonight

to add to what you said… i HOPE they run a full-court press for a vast majority of the game…

we really looked good against FIU to open the second half in our full-court press… i don't like the way this team lines up when they play a base, half-court defense

i don't follow other Belt basketball teams that closely, too many (13, opposed to 8 in football) except for FIU and Western Kentucky… so i don't know that much about Blue Raiders basketball… we'll see…

we really need this win

Re: FAU vs. Middle Tennessee Tonight

No chat room tonight?

Anyway, to the game.

13-7 MTSU at first commercial

"FAU calls a time-out and they need it."
"An ugly first seven minutes for FAU here."

Good start…  :-\

Nwoji is having an okay night…

Game clipped 30-25 MTSU at the half.

"FAU cannot handle this fast pace."
"FAU just falling apart on the defensive side."
"Carlos Monroe has been the victim of several double and triple teams."
"FAU is the worst free throw shooting team in the Sun Belt."

The game becomes 40-36 MTSU at 11:45 in the second half.

"Jeff Parmer leads all scorers with 11."
"Rex seems to have found his spark in Perkins and Kone."
"FAU is 7-of-14 from the charity line."
"FAU defense clamping down on this second half here."

Where is Sammy Hernandez? I don't remember hearing anything about him yet tonight…

The game becomes 42-38 MTSU at 10:43.

"We have ourselves a ball game!"
"FAU fighting its way back into this one. FAU does not want to let this one slip away."
"Monore has been quiet tonight… only seven points. He has been double-teamed though."

Monroe finally sinks his free throws (both of them!).

The game becomes 59-53 MTSU with 1:54 left

"It has been a BAD last two minutes."
"Carlons Monroe with 9 points, who has lighted up in this second half."
"Every time FAU has gotten down by double digits, they cut into it. FAU needs something big here."
"FAU has gotten some life back here!"

LOSS. The game finishes at 61-57 MTSU.

"Man, have the Owls battled back! They cut a 10 point lead to four in a couple of minutes here."
"Too many missed free throws put FAU in a hole they couldn't get out of."

4-12 in the year
0-5 in Sun Belt

Re: FAU vs. Middle Tennessee Tonight

What the hell is wrong with this team. We are lucky its still even close. All the announcer has had to say is Turnover FAU, offensive rebound MTSU, oh and another turnover FAU and theres another nice offensive rebound for MTSU.

Re: FAU vs. Middle Tennessee Tonight

Free throw shooting is probably are biggest problem.   Our opponents are just grabbing us because they know we cant shoot.
