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.

Northern Kentucky University is moving forward with the sale of its public radio stations.   

The school’s board of regents voted Tuesday to authorize negotiations with buyers for two of its three non-commercial frequencies.

The university’s board gave its approval for the sale of station WNKU in Highland Heights for $1.9 million to the Bible Broadcasting Corporation. 

An NKU station near Portsmouth, Ohio will be sold to another religious broadcaster.
