Denver Vs. Florida Atlantic Final Score: Pioneers Rally But Lose, 72-71

Denver's shooters did warm up in the second half of Thursday night's game against Florida Atlantic, and the Pioneers rallied all the way back from a 40-25 halftime deficit. When forward Chris Udofia scored a basket and hit a free throw to give Denver a 71-67 lead with less than 15 seconds remaining, it looked as though the Pioneers would escape with the win.

Instead, it was only the buildup to a heartbreaking loss, as FAU hit a quick three, Denver's Brian Stafford missed two free throws, and then committed a foul with hardly any time left in regulation. The Owls hit both free throws to claim the 72-71 victory.

Chris Udofia had another big game for Denver, scoring 20 points on 8-11 shooting. Stafford scored 18.
