FORT MYERS, Fla. – As Atlantic Sun action heats up, FGCU women’s basketball Head Coach Karl Smesko will appear as a guest on two radio shows this week.  Smesko will join Thom Abraham of The Thom Abraham Show Thursday morning on 1240 The Fan in the Southwest Florida area and will be a guest on the Atlantic Sun Insider segment on Fox Sports 1670 in Macon, Ga. on Friday.

The Thom Abraham Show airs live on 1240 and 1270 AM each weekday morning from 6 to 9 a.m.  Smesko will join Abraham at 6:25 to talk about the Eagles’ success this season and to highlight Thursday night’s matchup with fellow undefeated team Jacksonville University.

The four-time Atlantic Sun Coach of the Year will join Daniel Shirley and Charles Olson at 8:30 a.m. on Friday in their weekly Atlantic Sun basketball segment. 

In his 12th season, Smesko has led the Eagles to a record of 11-6 with a perfect 5-0 mark.  The team has won 41-consecutive regular season Atlantic Sun conference games, a streak that currently leads the nation’s 349 NCAA Division I teams.  FGCU is on the brink of its 300th program win, all under the direction of Smesko.
