Saints Set to Host Carson-Newman This Afternoon

DAHLONEGA, GA – The North Georgia men’s basketball team will look to bring in the New Year with a win on Wednesday afternoon, hosting Carson-Newman in a key non-conference battle as both teams gear up for conference play in the coming days.

North Georgia (5-1, 0-1 PBC) is looking to close out their non-conference schedule with a perfect 6-0 record and win their second straight game. The Saints picked up wins in their first five games before dropping their conference opener at Francis Marion on December 15. Chris Faulkner has the program off to its best start since taking over as head coach six seasons ago.

Carson-Newman (4-7, 0-1 SAC) is looking to get back on track after leading late at Alabama-Huntsville, but falling 72-68 to the Chargers. The Eagles were held to a season-low 68 points as they try to stop a three-game skid tonight in Memorial Hall.

Both teams have gone 13 days since their last game, with both squads competing on the road in those contests. Follow all the action live as the South Atlantic Conference and the Peach Belt Conference square off one last time before postseason play begins.
