MACON, Ga. - For the first time since 2006, the Stetson men's basketball team (15-15) is the Atlantic Sun Conference Semifinals. After defeating ETSU on Thursday, and holding the Bucs to an A-Sun Tournament low 25.4 percent shooting, the third seeded Hatters advance to take on second seeded Florida Gulf Coast (22-10) on Friday.
The Eagles defeated seventh seeded North Florida on Wednesday by a score of 73-63 to move on to the next round of the tournament. Stetson and FGCU are tied up at 6-6 in the all-time series, and the two teams split the season series in 2012-13 with each squad winning on its home court. This will mark the first A-Sun Tournament meeting between the Hatters and the Eagles.
Friday's Semifinal contest will be featured on Comcast Sports Southeast (CSS) with Matt Stewart and Sonny Smith on the call. The game will also be carried on ASun.TV, and for those outside the CSS footprint, on ESPN3 and the Watch ESPN app.
Robbie Aaron will once again have the call on the Hatters Radio Network, with coverage on WSBB 1230 AM New Smyrna Beach, 1490 AM DeLand, and MyAM1230.com. Live Stats, the @StetsonMBB Twitter feed, and Hat-Alerts are also available for in-game updates.
