FIU men's team is 2-0 in conference play after a big last second (literally) comeback over the weekend. The men and women both play Thursday. Women at 11 am and men at 8 pm. Unfortunately the women are having another bad season. The men are showing grit and I think can make some real noise in conference.

I was disappointed with the outcome. UNT handled FIU in every way. UNT is much better than their record indicates, but still, I was hoping to beat most of the CUSA teams.

When you have to play a four guard lineup in D1 ball, you are always hoping against hope. This team just does not have the necessary size. Whatever happened to that other big, the transfer from St. John's? He's on the roster but doesn't play. Injury? No clearance from the NCAA? Anyone know?

Anyone know what the story is on Sedee Keita?

I think he has to sit out the whole year after transferring from St. Johns. It would have been nice to have him this year as we are missing bigs with him and Wilcox on the bench.

They were hoping...and believe they still are....for a waiver from NCAA to let Keita play this season. Unfortunately, it might be too late, and it means this season is "wasted" for Keita and more than likely he won't play this season for FIU. Also, we lost starting PG Tevin Brewer for what appears to be a season-ending injury. Plus guard/forward Blake Furcron has been injured for a while and is battling to get some minutes and health back.

The improvement over the last two years that Osasu Osague has exhibited has been very impressive. In my over 35 years of watching FIU basketball games, I don't think I''ve seen anyone improve so much from his very modest freshman season (as a walk on) to the dominant player he is today as Osasu has.

This team is fun to watch. Go Panthers!
