I'm hearing there is a strong Owls presence in Coral Gables tonight(including one legendary football coach).  GO OWLS!!

True that…Just spoke to Bob, he said traffic was horrible getting down south due to a wreck and is just getting set up, but that the Owls have a strong showing and almost as many fans as the Canes!

Checking in for the first time tonight. What a horrendous drive here.

Anyway, both teams are missing shots. FAU leads 6-5. Not being intimidated at all.

The FAU crowd has made this a home game. There are almost as many FAU fans here as Miami fans and the very nice arena is around one-fifth to one-quarter full.

The Owls Parliament Sound band is loud and making is presence known. As the UM team was being introduced the entire band each held up a newspaper with Mike Jarvis' face on the cover and ignored the proceedings. The FAU faithful turned their backs!

7-7 now after a Miami shot and FT.

At 11:36, Miami has started to make shots and is hurt FAU inside with blocks. Ray Taylor was just mauled and no foul was called. The UM fans have woken up as well, but this is s very respectable FAU showing.

13-9 UM, Miami's largest lead.

Time out at 7:58. The Owls are toughing up, now trailing 19-13. Taylor just has a great run to the net and tried to pass behind his back. It was knocked away, but man, it would have been a beauty of a slam.

The Owls are shooting 52.6%, you would think it would be closer than six points…but:

The Canes are clipping along at 61.9% :o

Guess that what happens when you can score at will in the post!
