Men’s basketball welcomes two conference foes to Alico this weekend

After stomping Stetson in its first Atlantic Sun Conference game of the season, the FGCU men’s basketball team welcomes A-Sun newcomers NJIT to Alico Arena at 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 14.
After losing on a last-second tip-in to USC Upstate, the Highlanders will look to bounce back in conference play with a win on the road in their first-ever meeting against the Eagles.
The Eagles host their third straight A-Sun game when they take on USC Upstate at 7 p.m. Saturday, Jan.16 at Alico Arena. The last time these two teams squared off was in the A-Sun Men’s Basketball Championship semi final where the Spartans knocked out the Eagles to reach the championship game on a game- winning four-point play. The Spartans will look to do much of the same and defeat the Eagles in front of a home crowd.
After a strong showing against the Hatters, FGCU will look to show the Highlanders who runs the A-Sun and get revenge on the Spartans after sending them packing and ruining the Eagles’ chance at making an NCAA tournament run.
