BOCA RATON, FL - The Florida Atlantic University men's basketball team makes its final road trip of the regular season to face North Texas on Thursday.
Thursday's game is a rematch of a 61-59 overtime FAU loss on January 19. Greg Gantt had 22 points and Stefan Moody added 12 in the contest. Preseason Sun Belt Player of the Year Tony Mitchell had 24 points and eight rebounds. The game is the final scheduled matchup between the two teams before they both move to Conference USA.
The game will also play a huge factor in determining seeding for the upcoming Sun Belt conference tournament in Hot Springs, AR. The Owls (12-16, 7-10 Sun Belt) are currently seventh in the SBC standings, but are just two games behind fifth seeded FIU for the final bye in the tournament.
Live audio of the game will be available here. Tickets for the remaining two home games are available by contacting the FAU Ticket Office at 1-866-FAU-OWLS.
