RE: FAU Game thread
Everyone trashing the crowd, but in all honesty, a late night first round game at the tournament between two visiting teams looks like that at every CUSA tournament, no matter where it is played.

I didn't switch over to the LaTech game, but was their crowd any better?

Since they are the school that put up the most fuss about moving the tournament?

Ok, I'll concede those facts. But if this doesn't pick up in number of fans and broadcast quality, then i stand by my statement.

Crowd was better, but they were playing the "home" team, North Texas. Not much better though

Good game by the Blazers tonight. The team accomplished what they need to in game one. Let's hope it carries over to tomorrow night.

UAB is 4-1 vs. WKU in conference tournaments. The Blazers won in 1985, 1986 and 1987 (championship game) in the Sun Belt. They played in 2015 and 2016. UAB won in 2015 and lost in 2016.

He was in the stands at Senior Night, and was on the floor in the student section congratulating the team after the win. I thought maybe Ehsan had relented and brought him back.

Need better shooting from Norton, Darling, and Perry to beat the Red Blobs tonight, 0-6 from 3 vs FAU. Also need better play from Sullivan. I thought Gueye outplayed him last night. Both guys need to leave off the 3 point shots.

Coke, Ha Ha, and Scootie all came to play. The supporting cast has to pick it up.

Crowd was better but that was mostly N. Texas fans. Damn little Tech blue to be seen.

Norton has 25 assists and 1 turnover in the last three games. He's doing his part.

Yeah, Nick has been playing very well. Scootie, Cokley, and Lee have enough firepower to win this tournament if guys like norton can just provide steady play.

Yeah, he needs to go 6-6 from three every game like he did Saturday.

Video feed was good. Interviews by the band weren't. Crowd would have sucked there regardless of where they played.

I was please by the video quality. But it wouldn't load on my new smart TV. I've watched 3 games on stadium with it until last night. Now I have to figure out how to upgrade the flash player or go back to the HDMI cable.

Facebook app on an old FireTV stick locked up and crashed the device every 10 minutes.

I was forced to my backup - mirroring my phone using an old Apple TV. The resolution was iffy though.

Facebook app on a new FireTV in a different room seemed to work great - at least on the recorded replay I tested after the game was over. That is my plan for tonight.

The last 3-4 minutes of the game got very dicey from my perspective. We were up about 20 and then our guys started sloppy play, passes, quick shots and the next thing I know , we are down to 9 or 10 point lead and Im cussing Nate, and Bryant and Sullivan ( and Ehsan for letting it get that close). YIPES!
