It's not being aired in that market…best bet will be to try and stream it off the ASN site:

HOME - American Sports Network

Mixed reviews on the last one though…

I noticed the Game Preview said there was no radio for tonight's game.

A reminder, that like every season, ALL FAU Men's Basketball games can be heard on ESPN 106.3 FM and will be streamed at FAUSports.com. Home games will feature a video stream with the FAU radio call underneath it.

Tonight's game is an 8p tip, radio coverage on ESPN 106.3 FM begins at 7:45p.

As always, feel free to get ahold of me (@KLV1063, [email protected]) w/ any questions, clarifications, feedback, general FAU discussion.

Go Owls!

ASN says the game will be streamed on their site. We'll see what the quality is like. It is free.
