It’s difficult to tell what the Florida International Golden Panthers bring to the table as they destroyed Trinity Baptist in their season opener and followed that with a 67-51 victory versus Florida Memorial which was never close. The Lions simply didn’t have the firepower to be competitive with 26% shooting including a 5-26 effort from the perimeter. The Golden Panthers 45% marksmanship added up to seven more baskets which was obviously decisive. FIU saw Daviyon Draper pour in a game high 19 pointsand snag six pulls with Adrian Diaz netting 17 points and hauling in 14 rebounds. Donte McGill, and Jason Boswell combined for 19 points as FIU was too big and fast for the Lions.
The under is 7-1 in the Skyhawks last 8 Saturday games and is 7-2 in their last 9 non-conference games. Florida International are 3-7-1 ATS in the last 11 Saturday games. I would think the Skyhawks would have an advantage but there is no line out so there could be injuries so please check back…
