SERIES THREAD: FAU @ UTSA - February 12 & 13, 2021
Tonights' Quick Hits from FAU's 86-75 loss.
Ingram's Hamstring flared up just moments before tipoff. He sustained the injury three weeks ago in FAU's most recent series. He started in Game One vs. UTSA but saw limited minutes. He was tabbed as a stater tonight but was scratched from the lineup with Everett Winchester taking his place.
Injury Bug has swept through the program. Kenan Blackshear was questionable going into tonight after taking a tough hit in the lower back on Game One. Meanwhile Darden Kapiti took one for the team by earning a hard charge foul, but he injured himself in the process.
High Percentage Shots were converted with ease as FAU shot 58% from inside the arc. The issue was the Owls' woeful 6-24 from along the three-point line.
Free Throws were downright poor, killing any chance of FAU completing their comeback bid. The Owls shot 13-25 from the charity stripe. Many of the fouls in the second half led to completely wasted possessions.
Coach Dusty May said if there is a good thing about Ingram's absence is that it gave the opportunity for freshman Giancarlo Rosado to shine. The Palm Beach native scored 10 in 11 minutes of action.
