The Hurricanes were playing without standout guard Durand Scott again, who is still serving an NCAA suspension. That really limits the team's overall quickness and athleticism and that was evident in this game today.
The Hurricanes fell behind 32-25 at halftime, and they simply weren't able to cut into the lead enough in the second half. Sherwood Brown and Eric McNight each scored 14 for FGCU in the victory.
The Hurricanes (1-1) will Jacksonville University on Friday.
