Game Preview

When it comes to the perks Florida Atlantic earned following last season’s run to the Final Four, Tuesday’s ranks pretty high as the 11th-ranked Owls travel to New York to face No. 20 Illinois in the Jimmy V Classic opener.

FAU coach Dusty May couldn’t help but muse about his program’s good fortune shortly after the Owls knocked off Charleston on Saturday night in the final of the Field of 68 Tip-Off.

“I know that we have Illinois in (Madison Square) Garden on Tuesday in a doubleheader — and in an event I still have to pinch myself that we’re invited to,” May said on The Field of 68’s podcast. “We’re invited into that party. And you factor in Jimmy V and the legacy that he’s left and the impact he’s had on cancer research.”
