Florida Atlantic University's basketball team took the court for the first time 1988-1989 season. The team joined Division I soon after its founding for the 1993-1994 season and played in the Atlantic Sun Conference. Since Head Coach Dusty May started working with the Florida Atlantic Owls' basketball team in 2018, the organization has experienced a resurgence. They are coming off a 17-16 record for the 2018-2019 season. It was the program's first winning season since 2010-2011. Another highlight since May has taken the reins is that the FAU Owls played at the College Insiders Tournament. This was the team's first postseason tourney since the organization's appearance at the NIT in 2011. They've had one NCAA Tournament appearance, which came in 2002.

Where do the Florida Atlantic Owls play home games?
The Florida Atlantic Owls' home games are all played at the FAU Arena, sometimes called "The Burrow" by fans, on the Abessinio Court. The court was named in honor of a $3 million donation from the Rocco and Mary Abessinio Foundation to help the FAU athletic program renovate and enhance the arena and update its locker rooms. With just 5,000 seats in the arena, The Burrow offers you a great view of the action on the hardwood from every seat in the house.

Has Florida Atlantic seen any success since becoming a D-I program?

That year, coach Sidney Green led Florida Atlantic to a win in the Atlantic Sun Tournament. This qualified the team for an automatic March Madness bid. As a No. 15 seed, the Owls were matched up against No. 2 seeded Alabama. Florida Atlantic performed respectably but lost 86-78 in the tournament.
