Isiah Thomas brings his FIU Panthers into Louisville with a 4-2 record. All four wins for FIU have come against very weak competition.
After going 7-25 last season Isiah Thomas seemed to be going in the right direction when he got commitments from two highly touted prospects in the 2010 class. However, both of those players (Dominique Ferguson and Phil Taylor) were ruled ineligible. Ferguson, who was a consensus top 100 prospect is still at the school and may be able to play next semester. Taylor, has since left and enrolled at a prep school in New Jersey.
This years Panthers squad will likely be a little better than last year, but not by much. Junior guard Dejuan Wright is very good and Eric Frederick is pretty solid, but other than that FIU doesn’t have a lot to work with.
