FAU rally falls short

Those who turned off the radio early during Monday night's basketball game between FAU and Southeast Louisiana may have done a double-take when they saw the 90-77 score this morning.

The Owls trailed by as many as 24 in the first half, before mounting what almost was a valiant comeback.

FAU eventually cut it to 11 points late in the game before running out of gas.

So what to take out of the game?

First and foremost, those who were giddy as a school girl after the Owls routed a Division II team in the opener may want to wait before booking their trip to the Final Four. There are going to some real peaks and valleys this year - that's normal for a young team.

Southeast La. is not an NCAA Tournament team yet had the Owls down by 20 in a matter of minutes.

That said, it did show some character to mount a rally, which was led by Ray Taylor - the 5-foot-6 point guard who is just about as good as advertised - if not better.

The bottom line - the Owls might be pretty good, but they need to win a road game before the corner is officially turned.
