Isiah Thomas lost his coaching debut at Florida International tonight. To an NAIA team. By 10. Northwood, coached by Rollie Massamino who led Villanova to the 1985 national title, beat FIU 71-61.
Lester Hunte was Northwood’s leading scorer with 18, and Patrick Horstmann had 13. Marvin Roberts and Phil Gary Jr. led FIU in scoring with 15 points each.
FIU opens the season next week against North Carolina. That should be fun.
