Both FGCU and Stetson head into this game with identical 1-3 ASUN Conference records, and one team will look to get back on track with a win Tuesday night in Deland. The Eagles and Hatters both have wins over UNF, but also each have lost to Liberty, KSU, and JU. Stetson is led by Head Coach Donnie Jones, who is in his 3rd season leading the Hatters. The Hatters leading scorer is Rob Perry, who has an unorthodox shot, but averages 15.9 ppg. Stetson played a non-conference schedule that featured games vs Miami (OH), Miami, Campbell, and Georgia Tech.
FGCU continues to not be able to finish out games, and lost another close game to Liberty University, Saturday night at home. The Eagles have lost 2 of their last 3 games by 3 points, and need to start winning the close games. Tavian Dunn-Martin leads the team in scoring with 19.1 ppg, but struggled Saturday night (2/17 from field, 1/10 from beyond the arc). If the Eagles are gonna start winning some ASUN Conference games, they are need TDM to shoot better than that. The Eagles and Hatters always play close competitive games, so we imagine another tightly contested game from the Edmunds Center Tuesday night.
