Dolphins set for Rumble on Friday with A-Sun spot on the line
The postseason fate of the Jacksonville men’s basketball team is in its own hands on Friday night when they face North Florida in the SunTrust River City Rumble.
The Dolphins (8-20, 6-11 A-Sun) need a win over their crosstown rivals to secure the eighth and final spot in the next week’s General Shale Brick Atlantic Sun Conference Tournament.
“We’ve had a good week of preparation and the guys know what is on the line,” said JU head coach Cliff Warren. “We’re looking forward to a great crowd and tremendous atmosphere.”
Jacksonville has come alive in the last few weeks, winning three in a row and four of its last five games.
The game also marks the final home game for JU’s three seniors – Tevin Galvin, Delwan Graham and Shamile Jeffers. Galvin will be playing in his 117th career game at JU, tying him for sixth on the all-time games played list with the legendary Otis Smith.
LAST TIME OUT...
