We reported on FAU basketball starting the season with center Justin Davis on the bench due to a blood clot.
It's a shame. Owl fans have waited a year to see Davis on the court and will have to wait a little longer.
Without Davis, Brett Royster and incoming freshman DeMonte Simpson will have to step up.
I really hope that this team turns it arround this year. Ill hand it to jarvis, he's a good coach. I dont know how much of his BS i can buy into, but i know that he can run a good program. I sat in on a few practices last season to try and get a feel for how he directs. I liked that he was mic'd up so the player could hear him clearly. I also liked how he handled a mistake made by a player in practice. I forget what player it was now, might have been Paul Snoop Grahm... so snoop messed something up, jarvis stoped play.. didnt yell, called everyone into a circle and explained what snoop did wrong, and how to fix the problem. They went through the play again and he gave them praise when it was executed correctly.
Last year was bad. Loss loss loss loss loss loss.... i dont remember a season where we lost more at home than last. I took it lightly though, knowing that Jarvis didnt really have his hand in the selection and recruitment of players. He had to deal with all the bad blood put into place by Runaway Rex Walters (the cry baby, the coach who lays on the floor and then pretends he fell) Ill give Jarvis this year AND next year before i will question, complain or get concerned. Id like to see what he can do as far as recruiting and coaching with a fresh slate of players.
Sanchez Hughly is back in action this year. This WILL HELP our team. Sanchez is a stud of a B-ball player and if you remember 2 seasons ago, the kids got skills. Im excited for the season. Now.... Back to football!

Thats good information to consider because I'm looking froward to FAU's basketball season to start already! As a freshmen I think this is what I'll enjoy the most besides the occasionally parties hosted on campus. FAU's record was rocky last year.. but who says I could of done better. I hope to attend all home games, ofcourse if im not working! But they have a fan already =)
FAU picked to finish 5th out of 6th teams in East Division, the Sun Belt Conference announced.
I think Coach Jarvis put it best by saying how these preseason polls on based only on last years results. Nobody in the conference knows what other teams have at this point in the season and thats why they play the game. This is why I feel that preseason polls in all sports are just stupid but I expect a fun season from the Owls.
Hey there hoop fans - we just posted our basketball preview. Team should be better than last year, so take a look.
Boyd's whiffed on FAU, missing its win over WKU yesterday. RPI should be about .557 rather than .555. It still has us at 32.

All top seeds won on Wednesday. ULL did it in dramatic fashion - with a walkoff 3-run homer in the ninth.
The Gomber-Alexander combo has been real solid this season. Nice win. This is a fast paced tournament so lets do it again Thursday.
It may seem odd, but FAU fans should be routing for Troy, South Alabama and Louisiana-Lafayette to win as many games as possible (as long as they are...
