BOCA RATON, FL - In case you needed any more reason to show up early to Thursday, here's one more.
Prior to tip-off, Greg Gantt will be presented with a game ball recognizing him becoming the school's all-time leader in points. Not only is the game one against a conference rival and one of just seven remaining home games for the Owls, it's a chance to recognize the most prolific scorer in school history. Ironically, the presentation will be made before the game he set the record against, Troy. Gantt, who is fourth in the nation at 22.4 points per game, could end his career as one of the five best scorers in Sun Belt history.
While the individual recognition is nice, in his own words, Greg said that "it won't mean anything without a championship,." The fact that he is so focused on the team goal of advancing to the NCAA Touranment is part of what accounts for his success on the court. Fans can show their appreciation for the accomplishments of the team, individually and collectively by supporting the team early for all of the remaining home contests.
