Eastern Kentucky University’s men’s basketball team hosts Northern Kentucky Saturday night in McBrayer Arena. The Norse men easily defeated the Colonels last year on their home court.

EKU comes into the evening contest, off a close two point win at home over University of South Carolina-Upstate.  NKU, meanwhile, comes to Richmond after losing to their across-the-river rival Cincinnati. 

In their first meeting since 1992 last season, Northern treated visiting Eastern to a 28 point loss.  The Colonels, this year, are five and four and the Norse are eight and two.  The game tips off at six o clock tomorrow night. 

The Eastern Kentucky University women’s team takes on George Mason Sunday afternoon in McBrayer Arena.  The women got their first win Wednesday, a 55 point victory over Kentucky Christian.
