The North Greenville men’s basketball team will open up its 2010-2011 season on November 12th on the road, however the game is not a normal road game. The Crusaders will take the short trip down Highway 25 to take on the Paladins of Furman University.
The early season contest will be the first time in history the two squads have matched up on the hardwood and North Greenville Students and fans are highly encouraged to make the short drive to support the Crusaders.
Tickets are $10.00 and can be purchased on campus until the allotted number has been sold. Tickets can also be purchased the night of the game at the Furman University box office. The $10.00 ticket also includes FREE concessions for the duration of the game.
“We are hoping our students will take advantage of the short drive and come support us,” said head coach Chad Lister. “We would love to see more red in the stands than purple!”
Those interested in tickets should contact assistant basketball coach Rob Warren at 864-977-7155. Tickets will also be sold Wednesday November 10th and Thursday November 11th in Todd Dining Hall at lunch.
