Hoops team needs time to heal

Becuause of the odd-number of teams in the Sun Belt Conference, each weekend there is a team that doesn't play.

This weekend, that team is FAU and the Owls couldn't be happier.

All the proof you had to have was junior forward Sanchez Hughley limping to do post-game interviews after Thursday's victory vs. Louisiana-Lafayette.

And it wasn't just the Greg Oden-like beard that made him look old. Hughley played plenty of tough minutes, hurt his hamstring and is really showing the effects of the season.

"I think old age is all it is," Hughley joked.

And here's the best part for Hughley and the rest of the players - they have a few days off from practice as well.

Earlier in the week FAU coach Mike Jarvis said he would give the team off for a few days if he liked the way they played on Thursday. After the game he admitted, he was going to give them some R and R time no matter what.

So the team is off and the players defintetly deserve it.

"I was going to do it whether we won or lost, but it's always better to do it after a win, so they think they are getting a reward," Jarvis said. "But we do need a few days off."

Nicely done Jake. Great addition to Owl Access.

Then who do you think has the uper hand to be three yard directly behind the center.

Sorry, I read the above question wrong. Who will be UNDER center? No one. They will operate primarily from the shutgun.
