Look at their 5 wins this year -

Between the two of us, you'd think from our wins, we were Dll programs. 03-lmfao

FAU seems to score alot of points so if they get ahead in this game and Dukes fall into that "we need 3s" mode, that could be trouble if the shooting is cold. FAU is worse at the line than we are, so it'll probably come down to who sucks the least at hitting uncontested 15 foot shots.

I feel this Joe Maddon slogan is most appropriate:

They appear to be an offensive juggernaut!

128 versus Fla National (is that a golf course?)
112 versus Fla Memorial Univ. (not sure I know any other Memorial Universities 03-idea)
107 versus Fla College. (of course Crowley's Ridge College also put up 93 on Fla Col)

I heard there is a bidding war between ESPN, CBS, Fox, and NBC for today's game.

I like JMU minus 1.5.

FAU is another team I haven’t seen in years. Coach By says they are tall so we will see how the Dukes stack up. Can they force the game into a guard oriented uptempo game or get punked in a half court game favoring the bigs?
At least this game doesn’t count for CAA seeding. This is the last chance to kick the tires and settle on a rotation and identity for the team heading into weekend games against Elon.

If we stomp them, do we win a CUSA invite? 03-lmfao

FAU has a kid that Lou Rowe was after, Michael Forrest. I remember him being a high scoring guard (smaller though) out of the Ft. Lauderdale/Miami area that won a high level state title.

Not sure what he has done in the first couple of years

Transition offense is very much a WIP. Very rough.....

JMU 12-2

Think FAU has missed the last 10 shots. Good defense and cold shooting.....

Great start. Let’s see the Dukes keep a working margin the rest of the game.

These teams are playing like bad teams that have had limited time on the court this year.
