BOCA RATON, FL - The FAU men's basketball team will hold its third annual kick-off banquet tonight, before starting its season in full force on Friday vs. Ave Maria. The banquet is always a highlight, because it allows the coaches and players to meet the fans in a social atmosphere.
Tonight's event will be extra special due to some special surprise guests who will be in attendance. It is a very enjoyable event and one I have been fortunate to attend the past two years. After tonight, the team will fully turn its focus to the rapidly approaching season opener. I have said it repeatedly over the last few days, but I can't believe the season starts on Friday.
However, as rapidly as the season begins, it will end even faster, and we will be saying farewell to seniors Pablo Bertone and Dragan Sekelja. With 15 home games this season, fans will have the chance to experience many special moments and the best way to ensure you don't miss any of it is to be at the FAU Arena well before 7 p.m. on Friday to watch the Owls start their season.
