This is the worst team I have seen in a long time...

Pretty embarrassing to say the least. Anyone know how much longer Coach Evans has on his contract? I'm guessing he won't be making his usual stops to Pollo Tropical at GC much longer.

I haven't seen a game yet, so I don't know if its the coach or players, or what.

It's the fact that year over year, there is no continuity because the guy goes JUCO time after time. It's a big problem and the cupboard will be bare for the next coach too as the best players on this team are both graduating, Kessens and McGill. Go F I U!

The team got spanked by FGCU tonight. FIU is now 1-7 against real D1 opponents... It is time for Coach Evans to go, much like how it was time for Coach Turner to go. There are zero excuses for how poorly the team has played with how long Coach Evans has had to put together a solid team.

+1...such a nice basketball arena wasted on a garbage product. I would love to go to basketball game but this team is dreadful.

I used to go to games all the time. But I'm so embarrassed by FIU basketball right now. We are terrible. I'm not going to another game in less changes are made. It's inexcusable to have a team so terrible in a huge market like Miami, with a huge student population and so man y resources.

I can't go to another game, it's unreasonable. Evans mortgaged the future for a sorry team now. Really terrible moves in recruiting.

That is the part I just don't understand. If you decide to take the "win now" path and go full JuCo, how do you end up with "experienced" players who can't shoot or defend? Seems the only thing they do well is rebound.

So basketball lost tonight at home against GA Southern! 75-68. Go Coach Evans!!! It's obvious only a few care about the state of the basketball team. This team blows !!!

On a positive, we got Butch Davis and Coach Melendez!!!

It's not just that this team is awful this year and we are playing a bunch of freshmen who will develop... We're not. There is no hope going forward. Evans has built a disaster. One of the worst teams in D1 basketball. FIU is better than this!!!!

Another sorry loss... there is nothing to be even remotely excited about this basketball program. Not even next season.

I love FIU Basketball... having gone to lots of games as an undergrad I have that connection to this team, care and I am beyond disappointed in Evans.

I really believed in this hire. He's been the worst recruiter we've ever had. Bad coaching loosing to no name teams.

We need a clean slate here. As I've said before I think Pete wants to stay long past his extension and he will make a splashy hire here.

We lost to UTEP last night, who has only won 2 games all season. Ughh... bottom of barrel.
