It’s a big Atlantic Sun Conference showdown on Sunday afternoon in Fort Meyers. The North Florida Osprey travel to FGCU to take on the Eagles.
This is the third meeting between the two teams this year. Florida Gulf Coast has won both the previous match ups this season.
North Florida Ospreys
The North Florida Ospreys have had an up and down season this year and the record does not tell the whole story. They need to win their conference tournament to make the NCAA Tournament.
They come into this game with a 15-18 record and sit in 3rd place in the Atlantic Sun Conference. The reason their record looks so bad is they finished the non conference season 5-12. They played the likes of Florida, Arkansas and Syracuse just to name a few.
So although their record isn’t great this team has playedi n some big games this year which should help them as they close the season and try and get a NCAA Tournament berth.
To beat the Eagles they need to play better on the defensive side of the ball. They have given up at least 74 points each time they played them, and that number needs to improve to win.
Now this Florida Gulf Coast team is much different than the “Dunk City” team that took the world by storm a few NCAA Tournaments ago.
But this team does have a chance to make it back to the NCAA Tournament, and make some damage when they get there. They come into this game with a record of 25-7 and sit in first place in the Atlantic Sun.
They played a tough non conference schedule this year which contributed to five of their loses. Since conference play as begun they have gone 12-2.
The faster this game is played at the better the chance for them to win. They need to push the pace up and down the floor and really try and wear out North Florida.

Free North Florida Ospreys vs FGCU Eagles NCAAB Prediction:
This game is going to come down to if North Florida can slow down FGCU at all on the defensive side of the ball.
I don’t think they will be able to. I expect FGCU will run the ball up and down the court and really dominate this game from start to finish.
