FGCU blew another game in which they had a double digit lead (11), and they dropped to 3-5 in ASUN play. It’s tough to see the Eagles keep losing these close games. Their zone is so easy to beat and gameplan against, and they are being exposed by the whole ASUN Conference right now.

When it comes to X’s and O’s, Head Coach Scott Davenport outcoached Head Coach Michael Fly, and the changes made at halftime by the Knights, led to the double digit victory over the Eagles.
