Maybe the time change will give N.C. Central some good luck.

The Eagles will host their men's basketball game with Savannah State today at 3 p.m. instead of the originally scheduled 7 p.m., to help everyone involved avoid icy roads.

NCCU is still looking for its first win over a Division I opponent under first-year coach LeVelle Moton.

The Eagles almost got it on Jan. 20 in Savannah before the Tigers escaped with a 46-44 overtime win. SSU has won three straight over NCCU over the past two seasons.
