FGCU and UCA square off for the final time in the regular season, Thursday night from Alico Arena. FGCU defeated UCA 84-79 in overtime, on 1/2 from the Ferris Center. FGCU is led offensively by Isaiah Thompson, who is averaging 13.7 ppg. The Sugar Bears are led offensively by Camren Hunter, who is averaging 17.6 ppg. Eddy Kayouloud (13.1 ppg), their second leading scorer, has been a problem in the past for the Eagles, and he is definitely a player that can lead UCA offensively, and take over games at any moment. He is the perfect player to compliment Camren Hunter. UCA is struggling record wise, but average 73.1 ppg, and have the offense to stay in game, despite their ASUN Conference record of 2-8.
FGCU currently has lost their last three games, and have lost five out of six games. They are 7-1 at home from Alico Arena, and something has to give for this team, playing the worst team in the conference. The Eagles currently are 10th place in the ASUN Conference, and 10th place is the last seed to qualify for the conference tournament, so FGCU needs to win a few games down the stretch, or the team will be ineligible for the ASUN Conference tournament.
