The Owls accepted an invitation to play in the CIT tournament and will play at Charleston Southern (17-15) on Thursday. Tipoff scheduled for 7 p.m.
Under first year coach Dusty May FAU (17-15) posted its first winning season since 2011, when the Owls were the Sun Belt Conference’s regular season champion, then lost to Miami in the NIT.
The Owls enter the CIT having lost three consecutive games and four of their last five.
FAU’s only other postseason appearance came in the 2002 NCAA tournament, where the Owls lost to Alabama.
