Road Woes Continue For Owls
Florida Atlantic dropped a close one tonight on the road, falling to Sun Belt Conference favorite Middle Tennessee by a final score of 59-57.
Low scoring affair throughout the first half as FAU enjoyed a 26-22 half-time advantage. The Owls held the Blue Raiders to 8-26, 0-5 from long range, shooting during the period.
Despite not trailing the entire contest, Middle Tennessee went ahead 55-53 at the 2:04 mark.
However, the Owls were not done, as Paul Graham was fouled with 6.7 seconds to play and converted both free throws to tie the game at 57-57.
On the resulting MTSU inbounds play, the Blue Raiders would score the game winning basket on a lay-up by Demetrius Green.
The Owls got a last chance heave from half-court from Alex Tucker, but it was off the mark.
Paul Graham, who had been hot as of late, finished the evening with 3-13 shooting from the field, and was 8-8 from the line.
