Tipoff is set to start at 6:09 pm Eastern Time, hosted at the NRG Stadium.
The Aztecs have shown to be versatile in offense thanks to 8 players averaging 6 points or more per contest, captained by senior guard Matt Bradley. He has recorded double digit scoring a massive 25 times in the season with 2 of them being in NCAA Tournament games.
Right beside Bradley, senior guard Darrion Trammell has improved massively this year and comes with incredible momentum after his last 3 tournament games, averaging 15.3 points per bout throughout this event.
As for the Owls, they have a total of 3 players averaging double digit scoring in their current lineup. Sophomore guard Johnell Davis being the key for FAU’s offense, averaging 13.1 points, 5.5 rebounds, 1.7 assists plus 1.5 steals per game. With an above average 49.3% from the field, on top of 36.6% from deep, and 85% of his free throws, Davis has become the perennial shooter for FAU. Supporting Davis, sophomore guard Alijah Martin is coming red hot after an incredible performance in the Elite Eight victory versus Kansas State. In that match, Martin scored 17 points, posted 4 rebounds, and dished 2 assists on the offensive end while also being productive defensively with 2 blocks and 2 steals.
This match will be a play on consistency, if the Aztecs’ versatile offense continues to show up their ball movement and several shooting outlets, FAU will have a tough time pinpointing blocks in their defense rotations. However if FAU’s superstars Davis and Martin come in with the same momentum from their last game, almost no one will be able to stop them.
