The Crusaders are bringing their game on the road, as they face NCAA Division I North Carolina Central University on Thursday, November 30, at 7:00 p.m. This will mark one of the biggest opponents the men’s basketball team has faced in school history, and will be broadcast live on the NCCU Sports Network.
The Crusaders just began their season this past month, under the guidance of new coach (and former Christendom star player) Jeremy Minick. While the team is off to a slow start, sporting an 0-3 record, they aim to put their name on the map in their match against the NCCU Eagles.
The Eagles have twice competed in the NCAA Division I tournament, with berths in 2014 and 2017. Part of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference, the school has had three players selected in the NBA draft over the years.
Video and audio streams of the games will be shown on the NCCU Sports Network, beginning at 6:40 p.m. Thursday evening. The network can be accessed here.
