The No. 19 Florida Atlantic University men’s basketball team (5-1) has conquered Disney World, winning the 2023 ESPN Events Invitational after taking down Virginia Tech (5-2) in the championship game, 84-50, on Sunday afternoon.

In a field of eight teams, six who had made the previous NCAA Tournament, the Owls were the last team standing, ultimately winning in dominant fashion after an eight-point halftime lead turned into a 34-point blowout in which FAU never trailed.

Florida Atlantic will return to the Eleanor R. Baldwin Arena to host the three-team Field of 68 Classic. The Owls will take on Liberty on Thursday, Nov. 30 at 6 p.m. and Charleston on Saturday, Dec. 2.

That game and every game can be heard right here on Fox Sports 640!
