The brackets are locked, the stage is set and the University of North Florida Ospreys are swooping into Dayton, Ohio, to face the Robert Morris University Colonials in the biggest game in UNF Athletics history .



The winner of this first-round matchup will play No. 1 Duke. The community is invited to an on-campus Game Day Watch Party at 6:40 p.m. Wednesday, March 18, to support the Atlantic Sun Conference champion UNF men’s basketball team as it begins its tournament dance.



“We are thrilled to be part of this extraordinary moment in the University’s history,” said UNF President John A. Delaney. “Sharing it with the community that has supported the team and this institution makes it even more remarkable.”


The Game Day Watch Party will feature fun, prizes and the excitement of watching the men’s basketball team on the big screen with other Ospreys and fans. 


Many members of the Osprey Nation will travel to Dayton to watch the “Birds of Trey” play in person. In order to establish an accurate count and to prepare an appropriate venue size, anyone who wishes to attend this free event is requested to RSVP through e-ticketing.


UNF, a nationally ranked university located on an environmentally beautiful campus, offers students who are dedicated to enriching the lives of others the opportunity to build their own futures through a well-rounded education.
