Women's Hoops: FAU Knocks Off Fordham 66-53

The Florida Atlantic women’s basketball team defeated Fordham 66-53 on Friday afternoon in the first round of the FAU Holiday Tournament at FAU Arena.

The Owls (2-3) were led on offense by Brittany Bowe who scored 19 points and made 7-of-13 shots from the field.  Bowe also was a perfect 5-for-5 from the free-throw line and tallied a game-high eight assists.

The Rams (2-3) were led on offense by Randall Hurst who scored 15 points and led all rebounders with nine.  Katie Vican also added 12 points for Fordham and made 2-of-3 from three-point range.

The game was a back-and-forth affair in the first half as neither team established a lead of more then eight.  However, with the game tied at 18-18 with 7:14 remaining, FAU began to take control of the game as they closed the half on a 15-7 run.

In the second half, FAU continued to take a firm grip on the contest.  The Owls extended the lead to 49-36 after a Brittany Bowe lay up with 13:10 remaining.  The Rams continued to play hard but couldn’t complete the comeback as FAU made their free-throws down the stretch to ice the game.  The Owls went 7-of-9 from the free-throw line with five of those makes coming in the second half.

FAU will return to action tomorrow afternoon at 4 pm in the championship game of the tournament against the winner of San Jose State and Ole Miss in the other first round game.
