TOURNAMENT THREAD: FAU in the Gulf Coast Showcase - November 20th to 23rd, 2017
PG - Anthony Adger
SG - Gerdarius Troutman
SF - Jailyn Ingram
PF - William Pfister
C - Ronald Delph
Coach Curry is going with the same starters from the victory over Northern Illinois.
FAU has 7 turnovers and Missouri State didn't commit a single foul in that time span. In fact, Missouri State hasn't been called for a foul yet.
FAU's sees the lead slip right out of our fingers, as Missouri State takes a 36-28 lead into the half.
The Owls started the half shooting at 70% just before the 10 minute mark, but have crashed and burned to 41% since.
Poor shooting paired with giving up 10 Missouri State offensive rebounds is a recipe for a double digit loss.
The big guys have been missing on the score sheet, with Delph, Pfister, and Lepichev still looking for their first FG.
Missouri State makes three straight shots, while FAU misses three straight. The Bears also collect two straight defensive boards after missed FAU shots.
So I guess that's how this one is going to go today…
The Bears have continued their domination of the boards into the second period with a 11-5 rebounding advantage so far this half.
FAU completes their appearance in the Gulf Coast Showcase with a 1-2 record over the last 3 days, as the comeback effort comes up short against the Bears.
Troutman had a game high 16 points, 12 of which came from the three point arch.
The Owls will next host Ave Maria on November 28th at 3:30 PM.
