Back-to-back threes from Pettigrew and Sally have given WKU some breathing room, opening up a little lead. The Toppers still struggle to find an answer in the post for the Golden Panther bigs. McDonald returned to his starters of Jeremy Evans and Pettigrew at the 10:35 mark, and they’ve had the most success. Though the bench has been used thoroughly, it’s more of the same as it has yielded little results. So far, 6-3 bench point advantage for FIU and an 8-4 points in the paint advantage for FIU as well.
