NIU to host Eastern Illinois in Feb. 23 BracketBuster

Comments (...) | Add Comments

Northern Illinois will get an in-state opponent for its 2013 BracketBuster game, as Eastern Illinois will travel to DeKalb on Saturday, Feb. 23. Tip-off is 3 p.m. at the Convocation Center.

The alumni game, as part of the annual men's basketball alumni day, will take place at 12:30 p.m. the same afternoon.

Just like the Huskies (5-15, 3-5 Mid-American Conference), the Panthers have struggled this season as well. EIU is just 6-17 and 3-7 in the Ohio Valley Conference. The Panthers defeated NIU in Charleston during a 2010 BracketBuster, 73-70.
