FIU was 7-7 until two losses to C-USA powers MTSU and UAB. We are currently 7-9, but the good news is we already have as many wins this season as we did all of last season. If FIU can keep up this pace the Panthers will be in the C-USA tournament and might even make some noise.

Wishful thinking. They're not very good. They're better than last year, but have a long way to go. Coach Evans is done after this year. His contract expires and there are no plans to renew.

My sources are reporting that Ron Rothstein may or may not be in the coaching hire mix.

Rothstein is funny he's like 75 years old. That brought back good memories of the Heats early days with Seikaly, Grant Long, Sherman Douglass. fun times.

I am very curious of what Pete will do with the B-ball coaching job.

1. Evans is probably done. He's having a better season but wasted many years with jucos and close losses.
2. We know Pete's love of big names
3. The strengthening of the football program is the priority for budgets & resources
4. I there money for a splashy hire?... or are we going to for another Evans level hire (good lower level resume)

FIu isn't going to finish above 500, but at least they are better than last season. Wishful thinking indeed. If we make the C-USA tourney, at least it's something. FIU was actually competitive with MTSU and UAB.

Coach Evans is done after this season. I foresee a splashy hire, even though we don't have the money for it. We'll get a well known name that's way past his prime, (like Rothstein).

Funny thing is that Evans roster is better than last year. I think it is a good/consistent pg away from being good. If a new coach comes in and can retain most of the players, they will have something to work with.

Lost by 4 to UTEP, team hit 14 of 30 freethrows :shock: . Teams will continue to send us to the line, we are officially the worst FT team in the NCAA.

Anyone watching this ODU game? FIU has to have the worst offense in the entire country. Can’t shoot free throws. At all. 4 points through the first nine minutes of the second half. Hard to play much worse.

Well FIU beat Carolina by a lot. That's something. A good home win.
