EKU BASKETBALL | Colonels Looking Forward to 2017-2018 Season

The EKU men’s basketball team is getting ready for its upcoming season.

The Colonels have their first exhibition game of the year against Georgetown College (Ky.) on Friday at 7 p.m. ET inside McBrayer Arena.

Last year’s EKU team finished the season with a 12-19 overall record and a 5-11 record in Ohio Valley Conference play.

Head coach Dan McHale answered questions from the press during Thursday’s EKU Basketball Media Day and spoke about what he expects to see from this season’s Colonels:

EKU has plenty of talent on this year’s roster, including forward Nick Mayo and guard Asante Gist. But there is one player who fans will likely be introduced to very quickly. Spectrum News’ Lyndsey Gough has more on forward Jackson Davis, who will be allowed to suit up for EKU this season after sitting out last year due to NCAA transfer rules:
