The Huskies unleashed an incredible first-half 3-point shooting barrage, got some impressive, out-of-nowhere minutes from Isaiah Whaley and held on for an 80-73 victory over USF in their AAC tournament first-round game Thursday at FedExForum.

‘So thrilled to advance,’ Hurley said. ‘Obviously, winning that first game, getting a chance to play in the quarters is exciting for us.’

‘It will be a tough challenge,’ said Jalen Adams, who, along with point guard Alterique Gilbert, missed the Huskies’ 71-63 loss to Houston on Feb. 14 in Hartford due to injuries. ‘We are ready for it.’

FaZe Clan upsets Astralis at IEM Sydney

Despite being heavy underdogs, FaZe Clan took down Astralis in a deceptively close 3-0 final at IEM Sydney on Sunday in Sydney, Australia.

The victory comes a month after one of FaZe’s pivotal players, Olof “olofmeister” Kajbjer Gustafsson, took a hiatus from pro play. Many thought that this would severely hinder the team, and the results proved as much in FaZe’s first LANs. Meanwhile, Astralis came into the IEM final in piping-hot form, having dominated DreamHack Masters Marseille and beaten top teams in Syndey’s group stage.

The stage was set for another dominant win from Astralis, but once again, Finn “karrigan” Andersen & Co. stole the Danes’ spotlight and reentered the conversation of contenders.
