The skinny: The Ospreys lived up to their Birds of Trey nickname the last time out, tying a school record with 20 3-pointers in Tuesday’s victory against Edward Waters. … The Ospreys ran into foul trouble Tuesday - interior players Wajid Aminu and Trip Day each had four fouls within the first minutes of the second half. … UNF’s 58.8 percent percentage from 3-point range Tuesday ranks second-highest in school history … UNF will have to contend with the Hurricanes’ lock-down perimeter defense, which held La Salle without a 3-pointer (0 for 15) in Wednesday’s 57-46 victory. …Hurricanes sophomore Bruce Brown, a preseason All-ACC first team selection, has started the year quietly, but sophomore forward Dewan Huell has more than doubled his scoring from last season thus far. … Miami has won all four prior meetings in the series, including a 94-56 victory last year in Jacksonville.
