BOCA RATON – FAU junior pitcher Mike Gipson was set to be the Owls starter on opening night until Owls coach John McCormack decided to give Taylor Everist the ball instead.

Gipson didn’t let it bother him. Instead, he used FAU's second game of the season to show he is still a candidate to the Owls' ace.

Gipson made a pretty strong case to be considered the No. 1 pitcher with a dominating performance in FAU’s 3-0 victory vs. Cincinnnati on Saturday at FAU Stadium.

A day after the Owls dropped their opener to the Bearcats, Gipson threw seven strong innings, allowing just two hits and striking out four.
