Back and forth and plenty of offense, FGCU has taken leads — and blown them — in this first half. But as halftime approached, the Eagles went on their most impressive run yet.

Powered by Brittany Brown’s three-point shooting, FGCU, which ended the half on a 12-3 run, has a 48-40 lead at the break.

Brown has nine points and all-Atlantic Sun forward Chelsea Lyles has 10 to lead the Eagles.

The main question coming ino this game: Could USF prove to the committee that they were in fact an NCAA tournament team?

Right now, the answer seems to be now. Senior Shantia Grace finished the half with two points, but it’s been her replacement off the bench, Jasmine Wynne, who has impressed. Wynne finished with 12 points on 4-for-6 shooting.

We’ll see if USF can turn this thing around.
