SERIES THREAD: FAU vs FIU - January 14 & 16, 2021
Local Owl saidAlways good to beat fiu in whatever sport. This feels like FAUs biggest win so far this year.Posted On: Jan 15th 2021, 5:40 AM
I think so. It was a complete performance for the first time all season. Inside shooting, outside shooting, defense, rebounding, free throws, etc… The only thing that wasn't top notch was perimeter defense, but thats' just because FIU is such a strong three-point shooting team. Think of them like you would Marshall a couple years ago when Jon Elmore was draining 25+ nighty for Dan D'Antoni.

That's not a typo...
In their first home game of the season vs. a Division I opponent, the Owls are making FIU look like an NAIA team. It's complete domination!
