FORT MYERS, Fla. – FGCU men’s basketball head coach Dave Balza spent some time this morning previewing the upcoming 2010-11 season with Bob Harden during his morning talk show on WGUF 98.9 Naples’ FM Talk on Friday.
The full nine-minute interview from the Bob Harden Show can be heard HERE.
Just two weeks away from their first game at Big Ten foe Indiana on Friday, Nov. 12, Balza and the Eagles are now a full two weeks into the season since practice officially began on Oct. 15.
Earlier in the month, the Atlantic Sun unveiled its preseason Coaches’ and Media Polls in which the Eagles were selected 10th and 9th, respectively. Defending A-Sun regular season co-champ Lipscomb was picked as the preseason favorite in both polls. Led by preseason Player of the Year Adnan Hodzic, Lipscomb was also tabbed to win the league’s postseason tournament by both the coaches and media.
Redshirt sophomore Anthony Banks is the first player in program history to earn preseason accolades from the A-Sun since FGCU joined the conference in 2007-08. Banks is one of just three underclassmen on the 12-man All-Conference team.
