Instant Analysis

If there’s a crack in FAU’s defensive armor, it’s on the wing, specifically a power wing who can post up the Owls’ guards.

Louisiana Tech’s Isaiah Crawford is a prime example of this kryptonite. He feasted down low against FAU in both meetings. Can Memphis follow a similar blueprint with DeAndre Williams or Chandler Lawson?
