Nationally-ranked Augusta State will open the season this weekend in the UM Coca-Cola Classic in Montevallo, Ala.

The Jaguars, who are coming off the second-winningest season in school history a year ago, will face Montevallo at 8:30 tonight and Florida Southern at 6:30 on Saturday.

Augusta State is ranked sixth in the NABC/Division II men's basketball preseason poll, while Montevallo is ranked 18th. Both teams competed in NCAA regionals last season.

All-America forward Tyrekus "A.J." Bowman , who missed both of Augusta State's exhibition games due to health reasons, was cleared to resume practicing on Nov. 6 and is expected to see significant playing time this weekend.
