Dusty May: "If Our Defense Improves, I Think We'll Have a Shot Against Anyone."

Dusty May knows that people want to talk about whether or not Florida Atlantic can get back to the Final Four for the second consecutive season.

He'd rather talk about the Owls' defense.

"If our defense improves, I think we'll have a shot against anyone," May said on this week's edition of the College Hoops Today Podcast. "Our defense has been really soft at the rim this year. We need to get it back to where it was earlier in the year and where it was last season."

Florida Atlantic is currently 22-7 and ranked 26th in the ROTHSTEIN 45. Per the college basketball odds at FanDuel Sportsbook, the Owls have +180 odds to win the American Athletic Conference Tournament and own +2800 odds to make the Final Four.
