The Eagles continue to dominate the ASUN Conference, and Thursday night, it was more of the same, as #24 FGCU won their ninth game in a row. Hot shooting, crisp passing, and defense prowless were key in a 26 point win on the road vs KSU. #24 FGCU had 26 assists in the game, and when you shoot as well as they can on a daily basis, and have each teammate making the right pass that contributes to a bucket, the Eagles are impossible to stop. Defensively, the 11 steals in the game, took any flow to the Owls offense away, and KSU never led in this game. The Eagles held KSU to 14% (1/7) from beyond the arc, and if you try to trade baskets with FGCU, and aren’t hitting three point field goals, there is no way to keep up.
#24 FGCU was led offensively by Sha Carter, who finished with 27 points, and 9 rebounds in the game. Alyza Winston (16 points), Uju Ezeudu (10 points), and TK Morehouse (10 points), all finished in double figures in scoring for the Eagles. KSU was led offensively by Jah’Che Whitfield, who finished with 16 points.
#24 FGCU (26-3, 15-1 ASUN) heads on the road to face Jacksonville State University (15-12, 8-8 ASUN), Saturday at 5 PM, from the Pete Mathews Coliseum.
