Wednesday, January 30, 2008

FORT MYERS, Fla., - The FGCU men’s basketball team is looking for its fourth straight Atlantic Sun Conference win. The Eagles are now 4-3 in A-Sun play and 8-13 overall. They host Lipscomb who comes in with an identical 8-13 mark but are just 2-5 in league action.

The Bisons are led by Eddie Ard, who was a pre-season All-Conference selection. The senior forward is averaging 16.6 points per game, sixth best in the league and 21.0 in A-Sun games. Lipscomb has lost five of their last six games including three straight. Three of their last six have been decided in overtime and the other three were all decided by less than eight points.

During the Eagles three-game winning streak during conference play, FGCU has shot over 50% in each of the games. Casey Wohlleb (Boca Raton, Fla.) leads five players averaging double figures at 20.7 per game. During the streak, the Eagles are shooting 50.8% from the floor while holding teams to 41.2% from the floor.

The game can be seen live on ASun.TV. Single games can be purchased for $5.95 while monthly and yearly subscriptions are still available. Tickets are also still available by going to www.fgcuathletics.com/tickets or by calling (239) 590-7145.
