Full men's ball schedule out

Highlights of the 2013-14 men's basketball schedule, full version just released:

The season opens with four games at the Kennesaw State Tournament in Kennesaw, Georgia (SA-LUTE!) against Eastern Kentucky (Nov. 8), Youngstown State (No. 9), Kennesaw State (Nov. 10) and Warren Wilson (Nov. 12).

The first home games on the beach court with adjacent cabanas are Nov. 14, 16 and 18 against Florida College, Texas Southern and Stetson, respectively.

An interesting run in December sees a Dec. 7 home game against Florida Gulf Coast, Dec. 21 home game against Louisville then going to Georgetown on Dec. 28.

The Conference USA opener will be at Rice, Jan. 9. The first C-USA home game will be against Old Dominion, Jan. 16.

The FIU-FAU games are Jan. 25 (here) and the season-closer Mar. 6 (there).

And, that's that.

Louisville and Georgetown! Great home schedule with those 2 teams coming to Miami.

Great home games! We should see a packed house!

I don't know about packed house but we should have bigger crowds then in the past. very excited about the team coming back. I understand C-USA is a HUGE step up from the Sunbelt (specially in Basketball) but I think we can compete against most teams. Just think 2 years ago this team could not buy a win.. I think with 2 more years of solid recruiting we can be near the Top of the conference..

Go Panthers..

We can't fool ourselves into think that because now we are in C-USA, that it being a HUGE step up is a good thing for FIU. Like on the gridiron, FIU will see growing pains on the hardwood, at least on the mens side... But, they do have some winable games. Just not many winable games in-conf or enough to even earn them an at-large bid in march madness

Their number of winnable games doesn't matter. They're not going to the NCAA Tournament or even the Conference USA tournament because they received a postseason ban for this season as punishment for consecutive years of low, low, low APR.
