FGCU faces an FAU team that has won 3 games in a row after a three game sweep vs Western Kentucky. The Owls are 10-5 in C-USA play this season. Head Coach John McCormack has been with the program for 31 years, and led the team the last 13 years. The Owls are led offensively by the tandem of Nolan Schanuel (.410, 12 HR, 39 RBI’s), and Gabriel Rincones Jr. (.351, 13 HR, 53 RBI’s).
The Eagles look to get back on track after a tough weekend at home in ASUN Conference play vs UNF, where the Eagles lost 2 of 3 games to the Ospreys. FGCU continues to be led offensively by Alejandro Figueredo, who is batting. 379 on the year. It should be a great mid week non conference play game vs the Owls.
