I know it's early and a lot can happen, but for the first time in the last several years, there's a sense of excitement in the air on the campus of UNCW and at Trask Coliseum.
The Seahawks men's basketball team is playing with enthusiasm under first-year head coach Kevin Keatts…and they are winning.
Last weekend's game was another great example with a hard fought win over Towson at home. The thing that impressed me the most about the victory is what happened immediately after the game. Coach Keatts grabbed the microphone and thanked the fans for providing the team with the best home court advantage in the conference. You don't see something like that very often.
I've heard about the glory days of UNCW basketball. And like I said, it's early in the process. But so far, I like what I'm seeing from Coach Keatts and the Seahawks' fan base. A resurgence for UNCW Basketball might just be what this town needs.
That's my turn. Now it's your turn. To comment on this segment, or anything else, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
