FIU sophomore Marcus Ghent finished sixth in the long jump at the Conference USA Indoor Track meet, sailing 23 feet, 4 inches, and eighth in the triple jump, hop-skip-jumping 46 feet, 11 3/4 inches.

Ghent also spends part of Thanksgiving helping feed the homeless and helps promote breast cancer awareness with the Susan G. Komen Foundation among several other community service activities. For this, Ghent's one of 16 Conference USA Spirt of Service honorees for the winter sports (the basketballs, swimming and diving, indoor track and field).
