Late Miscues Cost Owls as They Lose to Troy 83-82
19-point second half lead was not enough as the Florida Atlantic men's basketball team lost its regular season finale to Troy 83-82 on Saturday.

The Trojans have typically been one of the highest scoring teams in the conference, but are averaging 62.4 points per game and have just one player (Emil Jones) in double figures so this season. FAU and Troy split last season's two meetings, with each team winning on the other's home floor. Troy spoiled FAU's senior night, coming back from a 19-point second half deficit to win 83-82.
