WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.- While the wins and losses won’t start piling up until next week, the Palm Beach Atlantic University men’s basketball team will make their unofficial 2009-2010 debut this week as they will be traveling to Miami on Wednesday, November 11th to take on Florida Memorial University at 7 p.m. in the team’s last tune up before the regular season gets under way officially on November 18th against Eckerd College.
Wednesday’s debut will be carried live on the Sailfish Sports Network with pregame coverage set to begin at 6:45 p.m. Stay tuned to pbasailfish.com for future announcements about this season’s coverage of PBA men’s and women’s basketball by the Sailfish Sports Network.
A squad fresh with new faces, PBA third-year head coach Terry Primm and his staff will be anxiously awaiting the opening tip to what appears to be an action-packed early season schedule with two very competitive tournaments upcoming as well as taking on some of the top-competition in the NCAA South Region.
The Fish are coming off a season in which they improved their overall win total by five games from Primm’s first year on the bench while compiling an 8-9 mark against members of the Sunshine State Conference, up from just one win the previous season.
PBA will open their home slate with a November 24th showdown with Rollins College at 7 p.m. PBA defeated the Tars 82-78 last season in the Rubin Arena on December 3rd while falling in Winter Park later in the season. The Fish will be back home in front of the home crowd on December 1st for a 7 p.m. matchup against Barry University.
