On March 1, the men's basketball teams from Barton College and Mount Olive College are going national.
The game between the defending NCAA Division II national champion Bulldogs and their archrivals will be broadcast live on national television on CSTV (College Sports Television) and FSN (Fox Sports Network). Tip off is scheduled for noon in Wilson Gymnasium.
It will be the first Conference Carolinas regular-season game to be telecast live nationally.
The teams are currently tied atop the league standings. Barton has won the last seven games in the rivalry.
Even with the game being shown on TV, I suspect Wilson Gym will be crowded that day. After all, it's a great chance to get one's face on camera!
Here is the Conference Carolinas' release on the event:
