N.C. Central is on a three-game winning streak in men’s basketball, all at home and against real-live Division I competition.
Tonight, the Eagles (7-20) will see if that recent home-court magic can help them pull off a big upset.
The opponent is Big South Conference leader Coastal Carolina (22-5), coached by former Clemson and Auburn mentor Cliff Ellis.
It’s the final home game for NCCU, and Joshua Worthy (pictured) will be honored on Senior Night.
