Go FAU Women's Basketball!  If anyone is looking for a team to follow on a limited budget…go check out the Women's basketball team. You will not be disappointed.

I have always been a FAU Fan, but was never a women's basketball fan (of any school).  I started following them when coach Jay came onboard.  Honestly, I always look forward to watching this team. Great entertainment.  Check them out sometime and you will be hooked!!

Junior transfer Ali Gorell's career-high 30 points propelled FAU past Cleveland State 79-74 on Friday night in The Burrow.

The Owls shot a robust 50.9% from the floor overall and were 37.5% (6-of-16) from behind the arc. However perhaps most importantly, they were 15-of-19 at the line, compared to just 10-of-20 for the visiting Lady Vikings (1-2).

Florida Atlantic led 40-37 at the break and would not trail until the 17:18 mark of the second period.

The teams traded baskets thereafter, as the lead exchanged hands five times before the Owls seized control for good behind Morgan Robinson's three pointer with 7:19 remaining.

FAU (2-1) enjoyed a 39-34 edge in rebounds, and was paced Melinda Meyers (11). Morgan Robinson pitched in 17 points off of 7-of-18 shooting to compliment Gorell's stellar outing.

The squad will next face Western Illinois at home on Sunday at 2:00 PM.

Ali Gorell strikes again, this time with a buzzer beater for the win over Western Illinois…game release via SID brandon Goodwin:

With four seconds left in a tie game, junior Ali Gorrell went the length of the court and fought her way into the lane for a layup as the buzzer sounded to give the Florida Atlantic University women’s basketball team a 90-88 victory over Western Illinois on Sunday.

Gorrell’s 24 points and eight rebounds led the Owls (3-1) while freshman Malia Kency tied an FAU Arena record with seven 3-pointers en route to her career-high 21 points. Freshman Sasha Cedeno also reached double-digit scoring with 12 points as the Owls won their third game in a row.

The Leathernecks (2-2) dominated much of the first half thanks to the efforts of Sophie Reichelt who scored a career-high 29 points. WIU, who shot 69 percent in the first half, led by as many as 17 before taking a 57-43 lead into halftime.

The FAU defense flexed its muscles early in the second half to get the Owls back into the game. FAU went on a 17-2 run and held WIU to just seven baskets in its final 20 shot attempts of the game.

Eighteen of Gorrell’s 24 points came in the second half, including seven straight points to give the Owls their first lead of the game. Fellow junior Morgan Robinson made a pair of free throws to put FAU up by five with 24 seconds left. A layup by Ashley Luke and a 3-pointer by Reichelt tied the game with 4.6 seconds remaining before Gorrell’s incredible layup for the win.

The Owls host the FAU Thanksgiving Tournament starting with a noon game against NJIT on Friday, Nov. 28.

It was a great game!  I have said it several times…the women's basketball program is worth your time!  Down 17 and never quitting.  It was a lot of fun.  Many members of the football team were there, and they were jumping up and down and going crazy.  It was good to see.  Go Lady Owls!
