5’3 SR G TK Morehouse 12.8 ppg

Overview:

FGCU heads into game 2 of the ASUN/MAAC Challenge after defeating Manhattan 88-57 Friday. FGCU relied on the 3 ball early to stake a big lead vs the Jaspers.

The Stags defeated Stetson University 59-50 Friday afternoon. Fairfield is led by 6’1 SR F Lou Lopez-Senechal, who averages 17.3 ppg. We look forward to the matchup between her and Kierstan since both are extremely athletic. Fairfield has 6 girls that are 6’1, so they will have some height in this game. Expect the Eagles to continue to play their game #rainingthrees. Since the Stags only average 59.0 ppg, expect Fairfield to try to hold the Eagles in check from beyond the arc, but this hasn’t been done yet this season, so we shall wait and see. Fairfield is led by Head Coach Joe Frager, who is in his 15th season leading the Stags.

Prediction:

FGCU 87 FU 58
