The newly ranked Jacksonville Giants are heading into this weekend with a 9-1 record and will put it on the line as they take on their cross town rivals, the Nassau Pride. The game will take place on February 12th at the UNF Arena @6pm. After 9 straight victories since December 4th, the Giants will try to defeat Nassau for the second time this year. 

Nassau head coach Dwane Joshua is a seasoned veteran in this league, and will look to enforce his will on a road to revenge after the defending champs took down his unit 115-94 just over a month ago. It should be an enticing battle between two teams that are jostling for power ranking positions.

The Giants continue to exemplify the epitome of teamwork, as the  squad had 7 players in double figures during this past weekend’s business trip to St. Augustine. The high flying and flashy passing Giants will seek to put on an entertaining but prideful performance against Nassau on Saturday, in front of their biggest crowd yet.

 The theme of the game will be to honor the Duval County teachers with Teacher Appreciation Night, where we will be honoring the 2022 Duval County Teacher of the Year, Charles Darwin Magdaluyo. 

The night of the 12th is also our Cupid Cutest Couples Contest, where fans wearing red will get the chance to win a special Giants prize! 

There will be a pre-game party outside the arena starting at 4:45pm! Keep in mind the arena has a clear bag policy.
