BASEBALL

Freshman catcher Aramis Garcia went two for four with a home run against FAU Friday night. Runs produced by the rest of the FIU lineup: 0.

In a 5-1 loss that opened the Sun Belt part of FIU's schedule The Panthers wasted a nine-strikeout pitching performance by Mason McVay. McVay gave up eight hits and three runs in seven innings. But FAU's Ryan Garton didn't allow a run, whiffed eight and kept FIU to only four hits in 7 innings. Garcia's home run was the only blemish on reliever R.J. Alvarez's line.

AQUAWOMAN

FIU Johanna Gustafsdottir swam the 100 backstroke in 55.0 Friday, not good enough to reach the finals. As with the 200 individual medley Thursday, this wasn't a surprise. Gustafsdottir's best event, the 200 back, is Saturday.

 And in salute to the two No. 15 seed upsets, still arguably the greatest first weekend NCAA tournament upset.
