GAME WEEK THREAD: FAU vs. FIU - January 23rd & 26th, 2019

Post

Final: FIU 78 - FAU 74

Owls trailed by 11 with just over a minute to go and had TWO stellar opportunities to tie the game with less than five seconds left. Tough break, especially for Stapleton who was on fire down the stretch. They will have another opportunity post haste, Saturday down in that town VERY far from the beach (Sweetwater).

Saw some people on Twitter be overly critical of Stapleton's missed layup. Did people forget that he was the reason why we came back in the first place?  And that final shot attempt was so difficult, much harder than it looked. He went into a euro-step from a full sprint, shot the layup over a defender, and just had a bit too much strength on the shot.
