Men’s Basketball: Owls stun Florida Gators in 76-74 road win

FAU held on for the victory to secure what may go down as their biggest win of 2022.

On Monday night, FAU men’s basketball (2-1) held off the University of Florida Gators (2-1) comeback to secure an upset victory in Gainesville.

“This win shows that we can weather some storms and stay composed,” said head coach Dusty May, who was an assistant coach at Florida from 2015-2018.

Senior guard Michael Forrest led the way for the Owls’ offense, scoring 20 points in 28 minutes off the bench. Sophomore guard Johnell Davis posted his first double-double of the season with 18 points and 10 rebounds.
