FAU (9-9, 4-3 Sun Belt) split its road trip last week, losing to Middle Tennessee 62-52 and then defeating Western Kentucky 65-62. FAU defeated the Trojans (7-10, 2-4) 61-54 on December 27 in Troy. Greg Gantt scored 26 points and became FAU's all-time leading scorer in that contest. He will be honored in a pregame ceremony on Thursday. Pablo Bertone had 21 points in that game as well.

Gantt Makes History in 61-54 Win Over Troy
Senior Greg Gantt became Florida Atlantic University's all-time leading scorer in a 61-54 win over Troy on Thursday night. The history bucket came less than five minutes into the game, when Gantt banked in a runner to pass Earnest Crumbley as the school's alltime leading scorer.

Sophomore forward Kelvin Penn's 2.83 blocks per game are 15th in the country. A limited number of "Destroy Troy" t-shirts will be given away to students. FAU will finish the weekend by facing North Texas on Saturday at 7 p.m.
