We listed tonight’s games and they were entertaining.
FIU 66 vs MTSU 71 – MTSU needed overtime to win this as FIU’s game-tying three attempt fell short and Middle added some late free throws.
FAU 44 vs UAB 75 – This was not fun but UAB showed out tonight.

La Tech 76 vs UTSA 78 – Less than a week after Giovanni De Nicolao missed a runner and the Runners missed the subsequent put back that would have beaten North Texas, De Nicolao beats La Tech with a tough spinning floater. Jacobi Boykins tied the game after being fouled shooting a tying three point attempt before Giovanni went down and won the thing.

Rice 75 vs ODU 82 – This game, unbelievably, required OT to decide. Old Dominion pulled away in OT but they cannot be happy with the way they played.
So Miss 85 vs UTEP 75 – The showcase game of the night (It was on BEIN Sport) was a snoozer until UTEP made the score only look respectable. Southern Miss dominated this from beginning to end.

NT 68 vs Charlotte 70 – North Texas looked to have completed their third one-point win after Allante Holston went to the line to shoot two and down just a point to Charlotte with 8 seconds left. He made the tying free throw but missed the second. Charlotte’s Milos Supica grabbed the rebound with four NT players looking at the ball and finished for the de facto buzzer-beater.
Tough break for @MeanGreenMBB. Charlotte gets an easy put back on a last-second shot to take a 70-68 win.
North Texas falls to 9-7 and 2-1 in Conference USA play. pic.twitter.com/wDnLlXvXp9
