Florida International basketball has been to one NCAA Tournament in their school history (1995). That is the only postseason tournament they have ever been to. Will the Panthers get back to the postseason this year? Come out to the US Century Bank Arena and find out.
Opening in 1986, the US Century Bank Arena hardly looks used at all. The seats are all very close to the action and in the expensive seats courtside there are chair backs for your comfort. You can enjoy your favorite concession items while watching the great basketball action.
The Panthers play in Conference USA, which is rich with basketball tradition. Teams such as UAB, FAU, Louisiana Tech, Marshall, Middle Tennessee State, Charlotte, North Texas, Old Dominion, Rice, Southern Miss, UTEP, UTSA, and Western Kentucky.
Golden Panthers basketball is right in downtown Miami and that means there are plenty of places to go and things to do both before and after the game. FIU has head some famous head coaches in their history such as Isaiah Thomas and Rick Pitino Jr. Their new head coach is Anthony Evans who led Norfolk State to the Round of 32 as a #15 seed in the NCAA Tournament before taking the Panthers job.
This season’s home schedule includes LIU Brooklyn, Stetson, Elon, Florida Gulf Coast, Florida A&M, Florida Atlantic, Louisiana Tech, Southern Miss, Charlotte, Old Dominion, UTEP, UTSA, UAB and Middle Tennessee State.
Come out to US Century Bank Arena and bring your friends. C-USA basketball is among the most entertaining in the game.
