There he is! Troutman's first FG of the game comes at the 10:00 mark of the second half, and it puts #FAU back within single digits.— FAU Owl's Nest (@FAU_Owls_Nest) February 23, 2018

It's become a joke at this point. This is the best we can do with Delph, Massey, Troutman, Pfister, and Hulsey graduating this offseason? Shameful. All of this senior talent with nothing to show for it.
Now we're playing ball! #Rice is forced to take a timeout after a Jailyn Ingram put-back pulls #FAU within 7! Game hasn't been this close since 3:48 remaining in the first half.— FAU Owl's Nest (@FAU_Owls_Nest) February 23, 2018
Rice 60 - FAU 53, 6:02 2H
Owls are right back in it!
OWLS LEAD!!— FAU Owl's Nest (@FAU_Owls_Nest) February 23, 2018
Gerdarius Troutman is a BAAAAAD man! Troutman hits two straight threes to give #FAU the first lead since the opening minute of the game. FAU is in the middle of a 13-0 run, 9 points belonging to the sharpshooter from Georgia.
FAU 61 - Rice 60, 3:00 2H
A chaotic final 10 seconds ends with Troutman hitting the game tying three-pointer with a defender in his face. The Rice full court heave falls short.
We're headed to overtime with Rice and FAU tied at 66 a piece.

Let's recap: Troutman misses a three with 15 seconds left. Payton Hulsey pokes the ball away after Rice gained possession on the rebound. The ball falls into the hands of Troutman, who shoots the game tying FG with 3 seconds left.

Heartbreak at The Burrow, as #Rice returns the favor from #FAU's buzzer beater last month in Houston. This is Rice's sixth win of the season, allowing them to stay alive in C-USA Tournament contention. pic.twitter.com/zGUuh2o33p

Have to control the trigger better and only allow the players that should be shooting take shots.
Also, why was NO ONE on the guy receiving the ball.
On a side note:
Our cheerleaders looked confused as to whether or not they should cheer when Rice made the game winning shot.
Had to reel it back in…
