-Florida Atlantic Owls @ Washington Huskies
-Alaska Airlines Arena at Hec Edmundson Pavilion, Seattle, Wash.
-Sunday, November 13, 2011, 5:00 p.m. PST.
-Florida Atlantic University, Boca Raton, Florida.
-Won the Sun Belt Conference regular season title last year.
-Knocked out of the NIT in the first round as a 15-seed; now they think they can make it to the NCAA tourney.
-Alma mater of former Seattle Supersonic Jerome James.
#1 G (Sr.) Shavar Richardson – Brooklyn, NY
-The saddest looking dude I’ve ever seen. Maybe because he has consistently gotten worse every year. Starting with 11.8 ppg as a freshman, then 8.4 and 5.9. Now this year he’s looking to break the 1,000-point barrier for his career. If his trend continues he won’t make it. We should cheer him up:
#2 G (Jr.) Raymond Taylor – Miami, FL
-Ask him where those dreads went (he looks like the guy from high school musical):
-Tweeted: “Don’t ever hold your applause for me!!!” Make the “Who cares!” extra loud for him.
#3 C (Jr.) Dragan Sekelja – Zagreb, Croatia
-Can’t play this season because he transferred from Baylor.
*Editor’s note: But his name is Dragan!! That’s so awesome!!!
#4 F (Jr.) Andre Mattison – Washington, DC
-Studying “Going HAM” at FAU.
-Apparently having a career high of 8.0 points constitutes as “Going HAM.”
-Hit him up on Twitter @BigDre7.
#5 G (Sr.) Alex Tucker – San Pedro, CA
-Forehead jokes can be made for days:
#10 G (So.) Dennis Mavin – Gainesville, FL
-“Mavin was also impressed by the atmosphere…in a game that had a sold-out crowd.” Talking about when when he was getting recruited to Florida Atlantic. Too bad FAU’s arena holds a mere 5,000. Let’s prove what Hec Ed can do.
#13 G-F (Sr.) Jelani Floyd – Chicago, IL
-Recent transfer from UC-Davis.
-Not even sure what to say about this one:
#21 F (Jr.) Jordan McCoy – Orlando, FL
-Every athlete should follow Jordan’s example and keep their sh*t on lock like he does. No Facebook. No Twitter. This man is like Osama bin Laden. I mean, before the whole getting killed by America thing.
#22 G (Jr.) Greg Gantt – Gainesville, FL
-Sign idea: Gant > Gantt.
–Has his very own fan page with a grand total of five “likes.” I’m sure we could give him a little boost.
#25 G (So.) Pablo Bertone – Philadelphia, PA
-Originally from Argentina.
-Be sure to remind him that we will continue to party regardless of Pablo’s whereabouts:
#31 G (Fr.) Omari Grier – Erial, NJ
-Has written two full screenplays. Renaissance man?
*Editor’s note: Adult screenplays. No, that’s a joke. But I think we could all respect that.
-Played for an AAU team called Jersey Shore Warriors. Let’s see if he knows Snooki and JWoww.
#44 F (Fr.) Kelvin Penn – Steilacoom, WA
#52 F (Jr.) Kore White – Fort Lauderdale, FL
