FAMU, which is currently in the midst of the longest losing streak in school history, lost to Jacksonville University 79-56 Tuesday night.
“This is probably the first time I’ve had to say this — and I regret even having to say this — but I was disappointed in our effort tonight,” Samuels told the Tallahassee Democrat after the game.
“Through 13 games our guys fought and gave great effort from start to finish. I thought the effort was average at best. I’m disappointed for the students, for the fans and this community. Those who came out in support of us tonight. It just was a disappointing effort from start to finish.”
The Rattlers (0-14, 0-1 MEAC) last regular season win happened March 3, 2014 at Morgan State.
FAMU will complete their three-game homestand against take on the Norfolk State (9-8) and Hampton (6-8).
“I’m not feeling any pressure to win that one game,” Samuels said.
