Coming off the first season in FGCU history that both the men’s and women’s basketball teams have earned NCAA tournament bids in the same year, there’s plenty of cause to celebrate with the teams at their annual postseason banquets.
The women’s gathering is at 6 p.m. Wednesday, April 5 and the men’s is at 6 p.m. Monday, April 17. Both banquets are at the Crowne Plaza at Bell Tower and are open to the public. Reservations are recommended and can be made by contacting Assistant Director of Development/Eagles Club Coordinator Matt Ring at 239-590-7107 or email@example.com.
At the banquets, fans will have the opportunity to interact with all of the players, coaches and staff members who have turned FGCU into the preeminent force in the ASUN Conference. Combined since 2012-13, the men and women have claimed six ASUN regular-season championships, five ASUN tournament titles, five NCAA Tournament appearances and four tourney victories.

Individual tickets for adults are $40 and children 12 and younger are $20. Tickets to the women’s banquet for a full table are $315, and for a half table are $175.
