First Win for Norse as NKU Rolls Over North Carolina A&T
Bryan Burke - The River City News
The Northern Kentucky Norse cruised to their first win of the season against North Carolina A&T, 68-55, in their home opener on Wednesday night at the Bank of Kentucky Center. It was head coach Dave Bezold’s 300th game as head coach (overall, he's 182-118).

“I honestly didn’t even know it,” he said. “It means I’m getting old, it means the beard is gray now, but it feels great in the fact that you’re able to do it here. I grew up in Northern Kentucky. To have the opportunity to be here and follow Ken Shields and continue on and coach, it’s a great feeling and I’m very fortunate.”

The Norse came in to the game fresh off of their season-opening road trip through Big 10 country where they lost at Wisconsin and Nebraska before coming home to play the Aggies. NKU head coach Dave Bezold talked after the game how those stiffer opponents made a difference on Wednesday.

“Those games can be really defeating. You have to manage their emotions, you have to manage their confidence after games like that, but we go into them and say no matter what, we’re going to get better. “

The tone was set early as sophomore forward Cole Murray came off the bench and knocked down three quick three-pointers. Murray would set career bests on the evening with 21 points and seven three-pointers.
