Houston Baptist University was founded in 1960 and the Huskies were in the NCAA from then until 1990 when they moved to the NAIA. They returned to the NCAA in 2007 and the basketball team is now independent, without a conference.
Undeafeated vs. Defeated
Nova is undefeated (7-0), while HBU is winless (0-6), and it will most likely remain that way after tonight.
Tonight is the first of two back-to-back games against Texas teams. Of course the second game, versus the #8 Texas Longhorns, will be much more interesting.
Tip-off is 7:30 PM at the Pavilion. The game will be televised online via Nova Nation All-Access and ChannelSurfing.net.
