You knew this would be a tough one for FIU: playing the 9:30 p.m. game Monday, going overtime and past midnight to upset George Mason, then coming back at 6 p.m. to face a better-rested Virginia Tech on the Hokies' home court.
So it proved to be. FIU fell behind 14-2, came back with an 11-0 run to close the margin to two, trained 33-26 at halftime, then fell back at the end for a 78-63 loss.
