Question from Justin
Coach,
As usual, great job on the media guide/prospectus. Can't wait for the season to start. URI should be a tough game, I'm looking forward to watching Carlos go up against all conference big man. The coaches son is pretty legit too I hear. Regardless, give'em hell.

Response from Head Coach Rex Walters
Justin,
Rhode Island will not be easy, but we won't get better if we don't play tough teams. Thanks for the support!

Go Owls,

Question from Matt

Hey Coach...

Amazing things going on at FAU!

What are your thoughts on the Sun Belt Conference, overall? Do you think it deserves more respect from the NCAA committee? For instance, last season South Alabama got jobbed, in my opinion, by completely being passed up in the selection process for the tournament. It's a shame the SBC's only team was North Texas - who didn't stand a chance against Memphis in the first round.

Do you think the SBC is at a point where we can get two teams in the dance this season? Of course, I'd LOVE us to win the conference tournament and get a bid, but with Western Kentucky, South Alabama, UL-Monroe, New Orleans and us, the SBC looks very strong and competitive from top to bottom. Could the regular season champion and conference tournament champion (if they're not the same team) BOTH get in this season?

Thanks for your response, as always... GO OWLS!!!

Response from Head Coach Rex Walters
Thanks for the kind words and great questions. The Sun Belt Conference is a very good basketball conference and it has been a big step up in talent and athleticism. Without a doubt, there are no easy nights in the SBC. I believe that non-conference records have really hurt our conference for the NCAA Tournament Selection. All of the teams in the SBC have to have success in the non-conference schedule. If this happens, I believe we will see more representation in the Big Dance. It is my goal to always be in contention for both the Regular Season and Post Season Championships. Saying that, I would also like to be able to put together a season that gives the NCAA Tournament Committee something to think about on Selection Sunday. Thanks again for your interest and Go Owls!

Sincerely,
Rex Walters
