GAME CAPSULE: #10 FAU vs Bryant - November 18th, 2023
Felt like at 11-2 they were feeling they'd have another EMU performance, got shell shocked after Bryant came back, and just never recouped. Figured they'd settle down after halftime, but they seemed even more tight and a step slow all game.
That loss was not unexpected since SMU was an 8.5 pt favorite.
What was shocking was when I saw the FAU score notification pop up on my phone. I was stunned. After reading through this thread I see the team was just cold today. It happens – unfortunately.
If a crappy loss like this had to happen, at least FAU wasn't the only ranked team to go down that way. 14th ranked Arkansas lost on their homecourt this week to UNC Greensboro.
20 games down the road if you're sitting at 22-2, everyone will look back on this game and laugh thinking how the heck did that happen.
Season's just getting started. Put this one behind you and just win going forward. Winning cures everything.
