Reflections and Notes:

Women’s Basketball:

  • Women’s basketball had their four-game winning streak broken by South Dakota Saturday during the FAU Thanksgiving Tournament championship game. The streak is the longest to begin a year since before the 2000-01 season.

Football:

  • Football finishes at 3-9 for the second consecutive season under head coach Charlie Partridge. His career record of 6-18 puts him at second place all time in wins behind Howard Schnellenberger.
  • With four sacks during last Saturday’s game, junior defensive end Trey Hendrickson surpassed the program record for career sacks. The previous record of 16 was set in 2013 by Cory Henry.

  • Redshirt sophomore Marcus Clark scored his first ever touchdown with the Owls during Saturday’s game, rushing for a 15-yard score in the second quarter.

Upcoming Games:

Women’s Basketball:

  • Sunday, Dec. 6 vs. Keiser, noon.

Men’s Basketball:

  • Tuesday, Dec. 1 at East Carolina
