NSU Basketball Update and Game Schedule

Men’s Basketball

After more than a week off, the men’s basketball team will return to action on Nov. 29 in a home game against Flagler College. Flagler and NSU are old Sun Conference rivals, but have since joined the NCAA and now compete in completely different regions. NSU is 18-23 against the Saints all-time, which includes a loss last year. The Sharks have not beaten Flagler since Feb. 20, 2001. The Saints currently compete in the Peach Belt Conference, a premier Division II basketball conference.
