Prsa All-Sun Belt Second Team

At the pre-tournament banquet, where the Sun Belt volleyball teams get served before being served to host Western Kentucky, FIU senior Marija Prsa was named Second Team All-Sun Belt. Prsa led FIU in kills with 360 and was second to Ryanne Milligan with 259 digs. 

FIU faces No. 1 seed Western Kentucky Thursday night at 6 p.m. in the first round of the tournament.

Mentioning Milligan, a Jasper, Ind., native, reminds me that I meant to include this video in the previous post on her as the Sun Belt Defensive Player of the Week...

 

Perez Sun Belt Swimmer of the Week; Shula Bowl line swing

Sonia Perez won the 400 Individual Medley in a dual meet with North Florida, then stole the show by winning her guest star appearances in the 200 butterfly and 200 breaststroke. Her 4:20.97 in the 400 IM was the 33rd best in the nation this year.

For this, Perez was named the Sun Belt's Swimmer of the Week Wednesday.

FOOTBALL

FIU opened a 1.5-point favorite over FAU for Friday night's Shula Bowl. Now, across the Vegas sportsbooks, FAU is a 1.5 to 2-point favorite. The over/under sits at 52, which, to me, seems on the low side.

And, in Davie, tight end Michael Egnew, a player the big-play-starved Dolphins took while leaving T.Y. Hilton on the board, has yet to get into his first NFL game.
