What to Know
The Florida Atlantic Owls lost both of their matches to the Old Dominion Monarchs last season on scores of 67-71 and 55-64, so they’re hoping to turn the tables this season. The Owls and Old Dominion will face off in a Conference USA battle at 4 p.m. ET Saturday at FAU Arena. Florida Atlantic is expected to win — but not by much — so they will need to come into the game prepared for a fight.
It looks like Florida Atlantic must have gotten on Santa’s naughty list since the team didn’t end up with the victory they were expected to receive last week. They fell in a 55-52 heartbreaker to the High Point Panthers.
Meanwhile, Old Dominion didn’t have too much breathing room in their contest with the Florida International Panthers on Thursday, but they still walked away with an 82-77 win.
Old Dominion’s win lifted them to 6-8 while Florida Atlantic’s loss dropped them down to 7-6. We’ll see if Old Dominion can repeat their recent success or if the Owls bounce back and reverse their fortune.
