The FGCU women’s basketball team plays No. 4 seed Miami in the first round of the NCAA tournament on the Hurricanes' home court, where they lost in controversial fashion by two points in the first round in 2017.
Very strong Eagle contingent in the stands and as a whole this is a very good crowd on hand. Big stat to keep an eye on for me is how well each team takes care of the ball; Canes can be TO-prone, Eagles force over 20 a game; can FGCU handle the pressure and get off to good start?

Mompremier will have a chance for a three-point play after a media TO as @CanesWBB leads @FGCU_WBB 14-6 with 4:53 remaining in the first quarter; Eagles 2-8 from field, all from 3-point land; Miami bigs loom large in the paint but some action towards the rim has to happen
