In-State Showdown is A-Sun Friday Night Game of the Week

FORT MYERS, Fla. – Fans who aren’t able to make the trek north for the FGCU men’s basketball team’s Friday night Atlantic Sun Conference showdown at Stetson can watch the game live on Comcast Sports South (CSS) starting at 7 p.m.

The game is the A-Sun/CSS Friday Night Game of the Week, continuing the partnership between the A-Sun and Comcast Sports South for the 10th straight year. The game will also be aired on ESPN3.com, while CSS can be found on channel 70 for Comcast subscribers in Southwest Florida.

Matt Stewart (P-B-P) and Sonny Smith (Analyst) will have the call for the first of two meetings between the two schools this season. Both programs enter in a tie for sixth place in the A-Sun standings at 4-4. The second meeting on Feb. 17 in Fort Myers will also be on CSS.

FGCU defeated Stetson, 111-103, in three overtimes the last time they met in DeLand, Fla. on Jan. 25, 2011, and eventually swept the season series from the Hatters. Oddly enough, the all-time series is tied at 4-4, just like their A-Sun marks.

Live audio of the game is also available at www.FGCUATHLETICS.com through the service of Stretch Internet. The voice of the Eagles Tom James will have the call from the Edmunds Center. Live stats and in-game twitter updates (@fgcueagles) will also be available.
