 > WOMEN'S HOOPS: FAU 85, Southern Illinois 81

FAU junior forward Chenise Miller had 28 points and 14 rebounds, both career-highs, and senior guard Breana Turner had 19 points and 10 rebounds as the Owls defeated the Salukis in the consolation game of the Miami Thanksgiving Classic in Coral Gables on Saturday.   
  • Owl-Star: Guard Takia Brooks was the third Owl in double figures with 17 points.
  • Instant Message: “Those three kids (Brooks, Miller and Turner) hit some key shots late in the game,” said FAU coach Kellie Lewis-Jay. “I really thought that a major factor in us executing late in the game was the fact we were able to wear (SIU) down. It is tough to play us for 40 minutes. It worked toward our advantage today.”
  • Key Stat: FAU forced SIU into turning the ball over 19 times.
  • Records: FAU 3-2. Southern Illinois 0-4.
  • Up Next: The Owls open Sun Belt play on Wednesday against South Alabama.
