10/17/2017 06:12 PM

The NKU men’s basketball team held its annual media day on Tuesday afternoon.

The Norse are coming off a memorable 2016-2017 season in which it advanced to the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament for the first time in program history.

This season, there are high hopes again for NKU, as it was picked to finish second in the Horizon League, according to the conference’s preseason poll.

The Norse opens up its season on Saturday, Nov. 4 against Urbana (OH). Tip-off of the exhibition game is set for 2:30 p.m. ET inside BB&T Arena.
