FIU's last Sun Belt Conference tournament game in women's soccer was a 1-0 loss to North Texas in the conference championship game Nov. 4, 2012. The Panthers left gnashing teeth in frustration, feeling before the tournament and after that they were the better team.
So, funny coincidence that FIU's first Conference USA tournament game finds them pitted against North Texas, Wednesday, for the first time since that game 367 days previous. FIU's the No. 3 seed from the East Division after a 1-0 loss to Marshall Thursday night. North Texas finished No. 2 in the West.
