Everything that could go wrong did go wrong as Florida Atlantic (18-8, 10-2) was routed† by Denver 69-42 on Thursday night to fall to 0-4 at Magness Arena all time.
The Owls saw season lows in field goals made, total points, three point percentage, three pointers, and rebounds.
Not helping matters was an 11-of-25 performance from the free throw line.
ďNot a very good effort in any one category tonight. It was a total team effort. As good as weíve played as a team, tonight we played that bad as a team. Thatís where you start, and thatís where you endĒ, said coach Mike Jarvis on the loss.
After a close start, the Pioneers (12-12, 8-3) gained momentum the remainder of the first half behind 63.6% shooting to lead in double digits 34-21 at halftime.
Matters continued into the second as the Owls struggled to contain Denverís scoring efforts, never getting closer than 10 points.
Starting in place of Kore White, Jordan McCoy was the lone Owl in double figures with 12 points to go with five rebounds in 22 minutes of action.
Chase Hallamís 18 points led Denver, who dominated 29-21 on the glass and scored 17 points off of 12 FAU turnovers.
Florida Atlantic next plays host to Louisiana this Saturday at 7:00 p.m. at FAU Arena.
