The Eagles are flying high on all cylinders, after a huge comeback win at home Saturday vs Liberty. Kierstan Bell (24.6 ppg) continues to play like the ASUN Player of the Year, and will be on pace for other national honors, when she is in the zone like she has been all season.

Head Coach Lynn Bria is in her 14th season coaching the Hatters, and Stetson is led in scoring by Tatiana Streun who averages 12.5 ppg. Stetson faced #16 USF, VCU, and Miami in their non-conference schedule. Yazz Wazeerud-Din has two graduate players as teammates that have played well in their first year with Stetson: Tatiana Streun (12.5 ppg) and Ayanna Dublin (7.2 ppg). Wazeerud-Din, Streun, and Dublin are the trio to stop for FGCU.

Prediction:

#24 FGCU 87 SU 57
