Overview:

#20 FGCU continues to keep rolling, and won handedly against EKU Thursday night. TK Morehouse led the Eagles offensively, and the next teammate up approach continues to work for Head Coach Karl Smesko, and it’s incredible to watch. The Eagles continue to dominate the competition in ASUN Conference play, and we see that trend continuing this weekend.

Head Coach Chancellor Dugan is in her 10th season leading the Knights. The Knights are led in scoring by Jaela Johnson, who averages 11.0 ppg. Bellarmine played a competitive non-conference schedule, with road games vs the University of Cincinnati, #10 Louisville, and #21 Ohio State University. FGCU should dominate this game from start to finish vs Bellarmine University Saturday afternoon, and it’ll be fun seeing the Eagles depth from their starters to their bench.
