NGU MEN'S BASKETBALL DOWNED BY KENNESAW ST. IN EXHIBITION

The North Greenville men’s basketball team saw its first action of the year in an exhibition game against Kennesaw State in Atlanta Thursday night, and the Crusaders were downed 90-40. 

Coach Chad Lister got the first look at his young team and as he anticipated in pre-season projections, freshman Paul Harrison and junior Kyler Vitko, both of Alpharetta, GA, stood out for NGU, scoring 14 and 11 points respectively.  The Crusaders shot only 31% from the floor while Kennesaw shot a scorching 60%. 

The Crusaders will have another tune up against a tough Division I Winthrop team Friday, Nov. 14 at 7:00 p.m. in Rock Hill, SC.  NGU opens the regular season Tuesday, Nov. 18 against Limestone College at 7:00 p.m. at Hayes Gymnasium.
