The FGCU men’s basketball team returns home to Alico Arena for the first time in ASUN conference play when the Eagles take on USC Upstate on Thursday, Jan. 19 at 7 p.m.
The Spartans, led by center Michael Buchanan, were predicted to finish last in the ASUN. However, they finished non-conference play with a 10-8 record and have started ASUN play 2-1 with wins over both Jacksonville and NJIT.
The Eagles come into this game winners of their first three conference games including an 84-80 win against Lipscomb last Saturday, Jan. 14.
The last time these two teams met was in South Carolina where the Eagles came away with a seven-point victory 71-64. Prior to that game, the Eagles were victorious 85-56 at Alico Arena last January vs the Spartans.
The Eagles look to build off the home crowd in hopes of keeping their winning streak alive and remaining undefeated in ASUN play.
