Women's Action: FAU Drops Denver; Improves to 7-7 in SBC play



Jessica Knurick


Florida Atlantic University was led by the outside attack of Brittany Bowe as she scored 17 points and Jessica Knurick who added 15 points in a 66-58 win over Denver at FAU Arena on Wednesday. The victory snaps a two-game losing skid for the Owls.

The Owls were helped by a fast early start. Tied at 10 four minutes in, FAU got out on an 11-2 run thanks to two jumpers by Andrea Taylor and two baskets by Bowe. Her jumper gave the Owls a 21-12 lead. FAU would push the lead into double-digits by forcing 13 Denver turnovers. Breana Turner’s lay-up late in the half gave FAU a 34-22 advantage going into the locker room.

But the Pioneers would charge, and eventually cut the lead to four points on a Kaetlyn Murdoch lay-up midway through the half. However, their last chance to slice the lead further ended when Andie Mason missed a three-pointer and Brittany Bowe got fouled on the rebound. Bowe would make two free-throws then get a lay-up late to secure the win.

“I was very pleased with the way our kids played tonight,” said Head Coach Chancellor Dugan. “We showed great defensive effort and the kids played their tails off and if we can get that every night, we’ll be in good shape.”

FAU shot 53 percent (26-49) for the game and only committed 11 turnovers and made five-of-eight shots from beyond the arc.

Denver was led by Britteni Rice with 13 points. Ashly Robinson, Murdoch and Mason scored 11 points apiece. The Pioneers out rebounded FAU 31-26 but also committed 22 turnovers.

FAU improves to 7-7 in Sun Belt play with the win.

Excellent work. I wonder if the attendance is improving along with the team.

They are playing MUCH better than the past few years. We've landed some pretty decent recruits that can really shoot. If it weren't for a couple bad breaks, we could easily be 9-5. Brittany Bowe has really been awesome this year, and our freshmen center, Jessica Knurick is really good and I'm pretty sure they both average double digits every game. But you never know which team will show up. There's the team that plays smart and takes high percentage shots, and there's the team that just throws up anything they get their hands on. When they are playing smart, they are pretty tough to beat in my opinion. It'd be nice if they could make some noise in the SBC tourney and I think they are capable of doing it as well. Plus one thing I've noticed, is that they really play as a team and enjoy each other's company, at least thats what is seems like. And they always seem so excited to play and play with alot of energy, which is probably why they have so much momentum and are doing so well. Go Owls!
