The FGCU Men's Basketball team traveled to Tallahassee to take on FSU in the first round of the NIT. The eagles lost 58-53.

It was senior Chase Fieler's final game as an eagle.

Coach Joe Dooley says he's proud of his team and how far they came this season. He says the best part of the day was always going to practice.

Both teams scored 34 points in the second half but it wasn't enough for the eagles to take the win.

FSU will now play Georgetown on Monday.
