Men’s Basketball was unable to start the 2015-16 season victorious as they lost to Michigan State University 82-55 in East Lansing, Mich. Friday night. The Owls (0-1) got off to a slow start offensively, scoring four points in the first seven minutes of the game compared to 20 points from the no. 13 ranked Spartans. They finished the first half making only 8-of-31 shots and 1-of-8 three pointers. FAU’s defense was able to force eight Michigan State (1-0) turnovers, but committed 14 team fouls by halftime. This allowed the Spartans to convert 11-of-16 free throws during that stretch.
