BOCA RATON – After scoring her 999th career point in Florida Atlantic’s last game, Owls senior guard Brittany Bowe found it difficult to score the basket that would put her in FAU’s exclusive 1,000-point club.

It took 11 minutes for Bowe to score hew first points of the game, but once she went over the 1,000 point mark she got going and so did the Owls as they defeated Louisiana-Lafayette 84-75 on Wednesday at FAU Arena.

“I can’t lie and say it wasn’t on my mind,” said Bowe, who had 16 points and five assists. “We had some good transition points and my teammates found me and that’s how I got some easy baskets…1,000th or not I could care less because the win is a lot sweeter than that.”

Senior guard Carla Stubbs, who entered the game with 994 points also felt relief after she scored her 1,000th career point.

“I personally didn’t want  to know about it ,” said Stubbs, who had 15 points and led the Owls with eight rebounds. “After getting six points, I could re-focus.”

Teri Stamps had 21 points on 7-of-9 shooting from the field to lead FAU, which won its third consecutive game.

The Owls (13-11, 9-5 Sun Belt Conference) fell behind 12-5 early to the Ragin’ Cajuns (8-17, 3-10), but FAU took its first lead of the game a with 9:48 remaining in the first half on a 3-pointer by Stamps that gave FAU a 17-14 lead.
