BOCA RATON, FL - The Florida Atlantic University men's basketball team will take part in its first road trip of the 2013-14 season when it plays no. 4 ranked Duke University on Friday, Nov. 15 and Boston College on Sunday, Nov. 17. This will be FAU's first ever contest against Duke and its third all-time meeting with Boston College.
Duke is coming off of a loss to Kansas in the Champions Classic in Chicago on Tuesday night. There are strong ties between Duke and the FAU coaching staff. Head coach Mike Jarvis coached the last non-ACC school to win in Cameron Indoor Stadium, back in 2000 when he was the coach at St. John's. His son and FAU associate head coach Mike Jarvis II served as Duke's director of player development from 2004-06. Assistant coach Tim Kaine is Mike Krzyzewski's godson.
Friday's tipoff is at 7 p.m. and the game will be shown on ESPN3.com. Sunday's game starts at 8 p.m. and will be shown on ESPNU. Live audio for both games will be available at www.fausports.com and on ESPN 106.3 FM.
