FAU Drops Nailbiter; Falls to 0-4 in Conference Play


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.
