FAU Invited to CIT, First Postseason Since 2011
FAU Basketball will head to Charleston, SC to take on the Charleston Southern Buccaneers (17-15) this Thursday in the First Round of the CollegeInsiders Tournament. This will be the Owls' first postseason tournament since their automatic bid to the NIT in 2011, and just the third post season tournament appearance overall.
This will give our young roster an incredible experience at tournament play, while giving us an opportunity to see Adger, Stapleton, and Lepichev for at least one more time.
