It's been sort of a busy day at 777 Glades Road, but yes there is a basketball game tonight...

...Gantt's 3-pointer at buzzer gives him 14 points. His career high is 29 vs. UALR in 2010
FINAL: South Alabama 77, FAU 66
...Owls lose in their Sun Belt Conference opener
...Gantt has game-high 29 points, ties his career high
...Owls (2-4, 0-1) face Arkansas State on Saturday
Went to the game.
It kind of seemed like everyone had a Conferemce USA and Lockdown hangover.
No energy from the team or the fans.
I hope that isn't the same on Saturday.
Just listened to the audio clip of Jarvis at the press conference.
He sounded pretty pissed off at the reporters. And it's only November
Obviously to improve their field goal kicking :)
Last week FAU added Niko Peros, a 2-year-old suffering from Fanconi anemia, to its football team. Here's a story about it from Care To Click .
Don't look for QB Quez Johnson to be named C-USA Offensive Player of the Week. He wasn't nominated. FAU chose Lucky Whitehead instead.
Free falling...45-38. WKU won the first half 31-14. FAU won the second half 31-7. Almost like watching two seperate games.
