On Friday, FAU released the finalized men’s basketball schedule for the 2020-21 season. 

The Owls will open up the season with the Ungar Memorial Tournament at the University of Southern Alabama from Nov. 25-28 in Mobile, Ala., where they will take on South Alabama, Jacksonville State, and Mobile. 

They will be bringing it back to Boca for their first home game on Dec. 3, where they will go head to head with Florida National University. 

FAU will head back on the road for four consecutive games in mid-December. The Owls will compete against North Florida (Dec. 7), North Carolina State (Dec. 12), Stetson (Dec. 15), and the University of Florida (Dec. 19). 

The team will make a stop back home in Boca Raton for a game against Florida College on Dec. 21 and that will close out their non-conference season.

Opening up the C-USA Conference schedule, the Owls will host back-to-back conference games. The games will take place Friday and Saturday throughout the conference slate.

FAU will host Middle Tennessee State, Charlotte, Western Kentucky, UTEP, and FIU between Jan. 1 and Feb. 20.

The Owls will be on the road against  C-USA foes Old Dominion, Marshall, and Southern Miss throughout Jan. and Feb.
