Florida Gulf Coast posted a decent season in 2021-22, going 22-11 overall with a 10-6 record in the ASUN Conference game. That record left the Eagles third in the Eastern Division, behind Liberty and Jacksonville.

In their first game of the season against USC on Monday, Florida Gulf Coast came out slow with a 30-29 halftime deficit. The Eagles rose from there in a 74-61 comeback win. Chase Johnston led with 20 points and Zach Anderson grabbed 10 rebounds.

On the San Diego side, they went 15-16 overall in 2021-22. However, the Toreros went 7-9 in the West Coast Conference, and that left the team just three spots off the basement. San Diego finished ahead only of Pacific, Loyola Marymount and Pepperdine.

The Toreros started well against a manageable opening opponent in Sonoma state on Monday. San Diego was 37-25 at halftime and crossed for an 81-59 win. Seikou Sisoho Jawara led with 17 points and Marcellus Earlington doubled up with 14 points and 10 rebounds.

CHOICE: I’ll probably try Florida’s Gulf Coast here. The Eagles blew away the USC team in a 13-point win despite only shooting 37.5% from the field. FGCU were solid on the edges with a 46-35 lead on rebounds (16-7 offensive) and had 11 turnovers to 15 of the Trojans. It was a good overall effort for the Eagles. If they can avoid the hangover from the big win in this one, Florida’s Gulf Coast must be in pretty good shape.

Andrew’s Free Pick:

Florida Gulf Coast Eagles +6
