FORT MYERS, Fla. – With their Atlantic Sun home-opening weekend fast approaching, FGCU men’s basketball head coach Andy Enfield and women’s basketball head coach Karl Smesko will sit down with host Bill Banfield on Thursday, Jan. 3, for the second rendition of the FGCU Coaches Show starting at 5:30 p.m.

The hour-long show can be heard live for free on www.FGCUATHLETICS.com via Stretch Internet. Banfield will be on the air with coach Enfield from 5:30-6:00 p.m. and they will be joined by junior Chase Fieler (Parkersburg, W. Va./Parkersburg South HS) for the final five minutes of the segment. Coach Smesko and senior Joyce Iamstrong (Chicago, Ill./Thornton Fractional South HS/Jefferson College)will be on the air with Banfield for the final 30 minutes.

FGCU leads the A-Sun in wins on both the men’s (9-5) and women’s side (8-5), totaling a combined 17 victories, including a pair of wins on A-Sun opening night at Kennesaw State this past Monday. Both teams came up with big wins at Alico Arena during the non-conference, as the men took down ACC foe Miami on Nov. 13 in its home opener, while the women returned from Christmas in style with a 76-70 upset of SEC member LSU.

Both Fieler and Iamstrong are having breakout seasons for the Green and Blue, establishing career-highs in nearly every statistical category. Fieler has been a human highlight-reel through 14 games, leading the team with 29 dunks en route to averaging 9.9 points and 4.6 per game, including eight double figure performances. Iamstrong’s dedication in the offseason has seen her 1.3 points per game average as a junior turn into 10.0 points per night to go along with 3.4 rebounds and 2.7 assists over 29.1 minutes.
