Rohnert Seals Two Quality Wins for the Pioneers
"We've been playing well every game for the past three weeks, but tonight at those critical moments we made the shots and didn't turn the ball over...I thought our big turning point could be a win on the road, but why can't it be beating the class of our conference at home?", said Denver Coach Joe Scott.

Jarvis Whacked With Three Technical's
After an errant out of bounds call under the basket where the referee awarded the Louisiana-Monroe the ball, FAU head coach Mike Jarvis could not contain his frustration. The FAU bench was immediately hit with a technical for vocal objection (which could have been him). Jarvis, who continued to protest, was then hit with three successive technical fouls on his own. As a result, FAU suspended Jarvis for it's next game versus John Brady's squad - which was billed to be the leagues most high profile coaching match-up at the start of the season.
Tidbits from Around the League
Florida International has been whacked by the injury bug yet once again.
Florida Atlantic saw its losing streak grow to a concerning 13 games at the hands of poor shooting, dropping yet another to the Trojans of the University of Arkansas-Little Rock by a final score of 59-66. The Owls are down to eight scholarship due to injuries and academic problems. Preseason all-conference forward Carlos Monroe is expected to miss at least another week due to a chronic heel problem.
That's the Stat Jack
The Denver Pioneers, despite their recent quality home wins, have lost 40 straight on the road. Ouch!
