BOCA RATON, FL - Florida Atlantic University's men's and women's basketball teams will open Conference USA this week. The women will travel to East Carolina on Wednesday and then return home to host Rice on Saturday. The men will hit the road to face Louisiana Tech and Rice in their first C-USA road trip.

The women will look to continue their hot streak, having won 10 of their last 11 games. The men are coming off an 81-47 win over Warner on New Year's Day. Both teams will look to make a good first impression on C-USA.

Since I travel with the men, I am looking forward to this week's trip. It will be to two schools that I have never seen. One of the many benefits of traveling with the team is that I get to to see how other schools' facilities compare with FAU's. This trip is no different.

This will be a great measuring stick for both teams and should go a long way towards determining how well both teams will do in Conference USA.
