Thank You, Owl Nation


Dear Owl Fan, 

The FAU Men’s Basketball team’s season was absolutely incredible! I speak for all of Owl Nation when I say how proud I am of Coach Dusty May and these student athletes.

While the Final Four game ended the team’s unprecedented season, they can hold their heads high with a 35-4 record for the year. The team compiled the nation’s best record and became only the third No. 9 seed to reach the Final Four after the exciting victory in the East Region final. In addition to winning both the Conference USA regular season and tournament championships, the Owls secured the first four NCAA Tournament wins in the program’s history. 

Coach Dusty May, who was named the CBS Sports College Basketball Coach of the Year for the 2022-23 season, and the players brought unprecedented attention to FAU’s basketball program and Florida Atlantic. March Madness and the Owls’ success truly is a story for the ages, and a marvelous moment in FAU history. 

Thank you, Owl Nation, for your tremendous support of this team and this program. These student-athletes played with heart and soul that exemplifies the spirit of FAU. It was exciting and heartwarming to see the thousands of other Owl fans who were as thrilled as I was to see our team shine. 

With gratitude, 

Chris Delisio
Vice President for Institutional Advancement and 
CEO of the FAU Foundation
