BOCA RATON, FL - As I watched the men's basketball team go through its first full squad practice on Friday (full report, including photo gallery here), I was struck by how athletic the team was as a unit. Coach Jarvis himself noted that both the team's athleticism and attitude were "better than any time since I've been here".

Most FAU fans are already familiar with names such as Greg Gantt and Jordan McCoy, but they will get to know faces like Stefan Moody and Chris Bryant in very short order.

This is a young team and will have its ups and downs, but it will be entertaining to watch them grow and mature throughout the year. While the team features a lot of new faces, fans will have plenty of time to get to know all of them, beginning at Thursday's "Midnight Madness". The event will be the team's official introduction to the student body.

FAU's 2012-13 season kicks off on November 5 against Lynn and with 15 home games, there will be no shortage of opportunities to come out and support the Owls.
