    MIAMI (April 1, 2019) - With the month of March in the rearview mirror, FIU athletics capped another busy week with six programs competing.

    Below is a brief recap of how each FIU team performed this past week.

    Baseball
    It was a tough week on the diamond for Panthers as they dropped a pair of series to FGCU and FAU. Logan Allen continues to shine for FIU on the mound and the plate however, as evident of his play last week.

    Miami Herald: Here's what the FIU Panthers are doing to improve after breakthrough basketball season

    FIU's breakthrough men's basketball season ended with a thud last Tuesday, getting beat by host Wisconsin-Green Bay 98-68 in the second round of the CollegeInsider.com Tournament.

    Still, FIU (20-14) finished just one win short of the program record for single-season victories. The first-round win against Texas State was FIU's first-ever postseason victory.

    The Panthers failed to be among the 68 teams to qualify for the NCAA Tournament or the 32 invited to the NIT, but this first season under coach Jeremy Ballard still ranks as huge progress for the program.

    Whether the Panthers can grow from here will depend in part on how successfully they can replace graduating point guard Brian Beard, who led Conference USA in steals (2.

    Official Site of FIU: @FIUHoops Drops Tough 98-68 Decision at Green Bay in CIT Second Round

    - Devon Andrews (Lorain, Ohio) scored 15 points, Trejon Jacob (Raleigh, North Carolina) had 13 and Elhadji Dieng (Mbour, Senegal) chipped in with a career-high 11 points, but that would not be enough as the FIU men's basketball team had its season come to a close with a 98-68 loss to Green Bay in the second round of the Collegeinsider.

    Miami Herald: FIU men's basketball team building a legacy with this tournament victory

    From Texas straight to Wisconsin, the season continues.

    Brian Beard and Devon Andrews scored 29 points each late Saturday night as the FIU men's basketball team beat Texas State 87-81 in a first-round game of the CollegeInsider.com tournament (CIT).

    Shortly after the game, the Panthers -- rather than return home -- flew north and will visit the Wisconsin-Green Bay Phoenix (18-16) in a second-round game on Tuesday.

    To be fair, the CIT is a third-ranked tournament at best, rating behind the combined 100 teams selected for the NCAA and the NIT. Still, Saturday's victory was the first postseason win in FIU men's basketball history.
