Overview:

FGCU heads into this game on a two game losing streak, looking to get back on track against another non NCAA D-1 team. The Eagles had some moments in Tuesday’s loss to USC in the Dunk City Reunion, so we hope to see a blowout victory vs the Tritons Sunday night. Cyrus Largie seems to always shine in big moments and big games, so expect another solid game from the Junior. Tavian Dunn-Martin struggled vs USC, after scoring 34 points vs Loyola-Chicago in his first game as a Eagle so he should get back on track also. FGCU is super deep at guard, so expect another strong rotation at the position vs Eckerd.

Eckerd is led by 6’8 JR F/C Joshua Galloway who averages 15.5 ppg. The Tritons are led by Head Coach Bryan Galuski, who is in his third year leading the program. Eckerd College plays in the Sunshine State Conference.

Prediction:

FGCU 85 EC 55
