Coley, Conference USA Player of the Week, Lieberman finalist; Baseball ranked

Senior point guard Jerica Coley scored a career-high 47 and 35 points in her two games last week. She also averaged 10 rebounds, five assists, three steals and two blocks. For this, she won her second Conference USA Player of the Week award. 

Coley also made the cut to 22 for the Nancy Lieberman Award, given to the best point guard in college ball. The award is given by the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

BASEBALL

College baseball polls outnumber flagpoles at the United Nations. Perfect Game and ESPN/USA Today doesn't rank 8-0 FIU. But Collegiate Baseball's weekly poll puts the Panthers at No. 30.

That should be 9-0 after Tuesday's game agianst Florida Memorial.

9-0 panthers! Go FIU!!!

Looks like we finally have hitting and pitching at the same time.

As long as the arms can hold up and the defense keeps improving... this could be an interesting season.

ITS PAY BACK on DARTHMOUTH!!!

GO Panthers.

What's the FIU record for wins before the first loss of a season?

The only FIU baseball team to advance past a SuperRegional was 17-0 & ranked 7th in the country before the first loss.

That team had multiple players that were drafted into the MLB in the first 10 rounds of the draft. Including a second round pitcher and two other stud arms.... and my sons current Hitting Coach.

This team is different.. doesn't have that HR power that Brad Eldred & Miguel Quintana brought to the plate (1999)

But NCAA baseball has changed with the new bat criteria.

At any rate...GoPanthers...
