After a loss to this team as their last home game of the season, the Falcons looked to end USA’s season and advance to the semifinals. Similar to the last time these two teams met, this game was a back and forth battle with Fairleigh Dickinson University commits and future teammates Chidube Ekwommadu and Josiah Francis going head to head.

Tobe Ezeokafur was the leading scorer for FEIA, showcasing his 3-and-D skillset. He hit shots beyond the arc and locked up defensively to ensure his team a win. In the end, the Falcons won this match 81-77 with cheering and support from the spectating women’s team.

The FEIA Red Falcons played next, matched up against the Crestwood Lions. This was a dominating victory for FEIA, as expected. The Red Falcons are the number one team in the OSBA with an undefeated record.

FEIA Red won this game 91-74 and put on a show for the fans at home. Three of the five Red starters combined for 56 points, including University of Virginia commit Ishan Sharma, University of Colorado commit Felix Kossaras, and Marial Akuentok. Akuentok also had a double-double, grabbing 11 rebounds to add to his 18 points.
