After a historic regular season in which the Florida Atlantic University men’s basketball team went 28-3, the Owls have now set their sights on the Conference USA Championship. The C-USA tourney begins today for the top seeded Owls as they will face off against the Hilltoppers of Western Kentucky at 6:30 pm.

The Hilltoppers advanced to their quarterfinals match up against FAU after their 73-67 victory over UTEP last night.

If FAU wins tonight, they will play the winner of the Middle Tennessee vs North Texas game tomorrow at 12:30 in the afternoon. Ultimately, the championship game will be played Saturday night at 8:30.
