Men's Basketball to Face Florida State in the MetroPCS Orange Bowl Classic

June 23, 2015

BOCA RATON, Fla. - Florida Atlantic University Head Men's Basketball Coach Michael Curry and the men's basketball team will face Florida State University in the 2015 MetroPCS Orange Bowl Basketball Classic on Saturday, Dec. 19 at the BB&T Center in Sunrise. The time of the game is to be determined.

The Florida Gators and Oklahoma State Cowboys also will meet as part of the doubleheader.

"Playing in the Orange Bowl Classic is a great opportunity to face Florida State, a quality in-state opponent, in a great venue that is within driving distance from our campus," said Curry. "It gives our fans another chance to see us play without having to travel very far. It's a win-win for the FAU program."

It will be the Owls' third appearance at the event. FAU played in 2009 and 2011, losing to the University of Miami on both occasions. The meeting will be the fifth all-time between the Owls and Seminoles on the hardwood, with FSU currently holding a 4-0 advantage.
