ESTERO, Fla. - The Eagles are asking fans to wear green Thursday night and help 'green out' Alico Arena to show their support.  For the 12th time this season, the game is sold out.

Many students decided to take an 'eagles staycation' so they could watch their team play this week.  Officials tell WINK News they sold 975 tickets during spring break.

Overall this season, the men's basketball team is 21 and 11.  Earlier this year, the Eagles and the Buccaneers met twice with each team getting a win.

To get to the semi-finals, FGCU beat Stetson University Tuesday night 77 to 55.
