FAU Sportspage with MikeJarvis
The FAU Sportspage is an ESPN 760 radio show that focuses on the the men's basketball team. Every Monday from 6:00 - 7:00pm at Boston's on the Beach in Delray Beach, head basketball coach Mike Jarvis joins Ken LaVicka of ESPN 760 to discuss previous and upcoming games.
Last night, they touched on the win against FIU on Saturday night. This was their fifth consecutive victory and it improved their record to 8-3 in the Sun Belt Conference. Jarvis said he was really pleased with his teams effort, especially with them putting up 106 points on the board. He also said his coaching staff was not very happy with the defense and that was something they were going to focus on in practice.
Later on in the show, they talked about the upcoming game against the University of Denver. With the high altitude being a big factor, Jarvis said he likes to walk around outside with his team before the game so they can get used to it. He also said he is going to have to monitor the big men more closely during the game because they are usually more affected by the thin air.
The ESPN 760 street team is also at the show every Monday giving away free prizes such as t-shirts and food vouchers to McDonald's. There is also an opportunity to win tickets to a Heat or Panthers game.
