Vladislav Goldin: Florida Atlantic's center holds the best field goal percentage in the country, scoring on 70.5% of his shots. If the Owls continue to feed him down low, the 7'1" junior can take over any game they play in.


Jordan Ivy-Curry: The UTSA's starting guard has played in eight games this season and has become a key player for the Roadrunners, averaging 17.1 points, 6.0 rebounds, and 4.0 assists per game. UTSA is a better team with him in the lineup and he'll have to bring his "A" game if they want any chance of upsetting the Owls.
