Tuesday, November 27, 2007

TEMPE, Az., - The FGCU men’s basketball team concludes its 13-day five-game road trip on Wednesday night when they take on Arizona State at 9:00 pm EST. FGCU is currently 2-4 while the Sun Devils are 3-1.

Arizona State has won three consecutive games after dropping their season opener to Illinois in the Maui Invitational. ASU has three players averaging double figures in scoring including a Wooden Award candidate in Jeff Pendergraph. Pendergraph is averaging 11.8 points per game and a team-high 6.5 rebounds per contest. James Harden is averaging a team-best 16.5 points per game while Ty Abbott adds 10.5 points per contest. The Sun Devils are currently on a three-game winning streak including a 34-point win on Monday night in their home opener.

Despite finishing up their road trip, the Eagles are just hitting the middle of a stretch of nine consecutive games away from Alico Arena. The Eagles are looking to even their record in games away from Alico Arena (currently 2-3) on Wednesday night. Landon Adler was named to the 2007 South Padre Island Invitational All-Tournament team after picking up a pair of double-doubles in the four game event.

The game can be heard live on SportsRadio 770 as Dave Moulton calls the action. The Eagles will be back in action on Sunday, December 2, when they travel to Miami, Fla., to face Florida International at 3:00 pm.
