This Sunday, the Fairleigh Dickinson Knights will head to Nationwide Arena to take on the Florida Atlantic Owls. The Fairleigh Dickinson Knights will enter this game against the Florida Atlantic Owls following a massive upset win yesterday against the Purdue Boilermakers which resulted in a final score of 63-58. The Knights will enter this game against the Owls as underdogs once again.
The Fairleigh Dickinson Knights will need another major upset no doubt, but they’ll need help from every player in their lineup, especially Demetre Roberts. Demetre Roberts has hands down been the best player for the Knights all season long and his statistics clearly show that. Roberts currently averages 34.3 minutes, 16.5 points, and 4.3 rebounds per game this season. Safe to say that if the Knights want to win, they’ll need Demetre Roberts at his very best.
The Florida Atlantic Owls will enter this game against the Fairleigh Dickinson Knights following a huge win against the Memphis Tigers yesterday which resulted in a nail biter of a finish as the Owls took the win by a score of 66-65. The Florida Atlantic Owls have been a power house all season all season long and their record clearly shows that. The Owls finished 1st in the C-USA this year as they ended up holding an overall record of 32-3.
The Florida Atlantic Owls didn’t get to 1st in their conference and to this game by only having one player do all the heavy lifting, as Johnell Davis and Alijah Martin have been the Owls one-two punch all season long. Davis and Martin are both averaging over 25 minutes, 13 points, and 5 rebounds per game this season. Expect these two to be at their very best in this game against the Knights.
