BOCA RATON, FL - Florida Atlantic men's basketball head coach Mike Jarvis will return to his hometown of Cambridge, MA when the Owls face #25 Harvard on Thursday night.
Thursday's game will mark just the second game against an Ivy League school in FAU history, the Owls defeated Columbia 70-58 on January 2, 1996.
The game will be the third against a ranked opponent this season for FAU, who has previously faced Kansas and Mississippi State, who were ranked 14th and 17th respectively when they played the Owls.
