WONDERFUL ball movement gives Maitre an open three, and he drains it!— FAU Owl's Nest (@FAU_Owls_Nest) January 17, 2020
We're tied at 93 with 1:05 left.
But Ingram just fouled out with a WEAK blocking call! YOU CAN'T BE SERIOUS REFS!?

TBH, with how this game went, we were totally expecting for this to go in to force double OT. 🙄😂 pic.twitter.com/yJ9LZeTDFU
Owls were down by 12 with just over five minutes remaining. Then they finally started to play some defense and hit their open shots.
MTSU looked like Marshall of UTSA with how well they shot from three.
