Northern Kentucky University’s men’s basketball team took the court to practice earlier this week. As WEKU’s Cheri Lawson reports the team was preparing for their first ever trip to the NCAA tournament known as the “Big Dance."
What they’ve accomplished is rare. Only six other teams have ever qualified for the NCAA Division 1 men’s tournament in their first year of eligibility. And they’re scheduled to play none other than the University of Kentucky Wildcats.
