The Florida Gulf Coast University men's basketball team will be taking on Nebraska at 9 p.m. tonight in their first regular-season game at Pinnacle Bank Arena.

Join us at 8:30 p.m. – 30 minutes before tipoff – for a live chat with Eagles fans as we break down the action from the game.

FGCU returns four starters – Brett Comer, Bernard Thompson, Chase Fieler and Eric McKnight – from last season’s high-flying 26-11 team that ran away from second-seeded Georgetown and seventh-seeded San Diego State in the NCAA tournament to become the first-ever 15th seed to make the Sweet 16.
