Notables

The Owls suffered a lopsided 71-49 setback to Harvard on Thursday night in Cambridge, MA. Justin Massey was one of the lone bright spots for the squad, registering a career high 17 points. So far on the season, the freshman is 6-of-11 from long range.

Like in their exhibition contest against St. Thomas,  FAU struggled on the glass. However Kelvin Penn did manage to haul in a team high seven boards.

Jackson Trapp's 35.67 minutes per game is currently the 2nd most in Conference USA.

The Owls' have some connections with the Peach State. Head Coach Michael Curry's attended high school in Augusta and went to college at Georgia Southern, C.J. Turman won a state title at Morgan County High School.

Wow that was the WORST  charging call on Raffington of ALL TIME. Total acting job, and the ref bought it hook line and sinker.
