N.C. Central will look for a huge upset Saturday night in men’s basketball.
The Eagles (2-8), will continue to seek their first win against a Division I team for first-year coach LeVelle Moton when they visit Indiana (4-5) at Assembly Hall.
The game will be shown on the Big Ten Network, the Eagles’ second appearance on that channel this season. NCCU lost 73-63 at Iowa on Nov. 28.
C.J. Wilkerson (pictured) is the leading scorer and rebounder for NCCU, which will not have junior wing Vincent Davis for the second straight game because of a personal leave of absence.
Bawa Muniru, a 6-10 freshman out of Durham’s Mt. Zion Christian Academy, is a reserve center for the Hoosiers.
