Florida Atlantic Form

Florida Atlantic are riding a nine-game win streak heading into the Sweet 16 at March Madness.

The Owls have not lost since they were beaten 74-70 at Middle Tennessee back on February 16.

They bounced back from that with a four-game win streak to close out the regular season, and kept it going in the Conference USA tournament.

Florida Atlantic beat Western Kentucky 75-51 and Middle Tennessee 68-65 to set up a final meeting with UAB, who they beat 78-56.

The Owls have not slowed down in the national championship either, beating #24 Memphis 66-65 and Fairleigh Dickinson 78-70 to make it to the Sweet 16.

Tennessee Form

Tennessee came into March Madness in underwhelming form, but that has not stopped them from making the Sweet 16.

The Volunteers lost three of their final four games in the regular season, and made only a brief appearance in the SEC tournament.

They beat Mississippi in their opening game, 70-55, only to lose 79-71 to #25 Missouri in the next round.

Tennessee rebounded from that loss by battling past Louisiana, 58-55, in the first round of the national tournament.

The Volunteers then downed #12 Duke in the second round, 65-52, to set up this meeting with FAU.


Momentum is firmly on the side of Florida Atlantic heading into this game.

They are on a red-hot run and cover routinely as an underdog, so we are taking the Owls and the points.
