GAME THREAD: ODU @ FAU - January 10, 2019
Do I think we're going to replicate the 2010-2011 success this season? No.
Do I think that we are cementing the building blocks for the future of this program, while providing an entertaining product on the court that is guaranteed to make Owl Nation proud? Bet your ass.
And this fact remains: When The Burrow gets packed, it can get LOUD. Remember when a player from Troy called The Burrow the Camden Indoor of the Sunbelt. Think about it, half of the arena is the student section. Play a good product, and those students will come back in huge numbers again. Play with passion, the same kind of passion that the team has shown so far this season, and the students will come back even rowdier than the first time.
It is a pleasure to watch F Xavian Stapleton play. He was never known for being a great shooter at his previous stops (Mississippi St. and Louisiana Tech), but since he has joined FAU he has looked sharp from the three point line. That is a great example at a coach getting the most out of a player.
Very much looking forward to the next game, at home vs Charlotte. FAU is playing their best basketball of the season, and it is very exciting to watch. See you in The Burrow Saturday afternoon.
Congrats and GO OWLS!!!
I hope we double his salary or something so that he's not snatched up by another mid major school. He's young so he might not be in a hurry to career hop. A salary bump might buy us a year or two with him.
