HIGH POINT, N.C. – The High Point University men’s basketball team’s game at SEC foe Georgia will air live on ESPNU on Wednesday, November 25.
The contest between the Panthers and Bulldogs will tip at 5 p.m. inside Stegeman Coliseum in Athens, Ga. It will mark the second meeting between the schools and HPU’s 12th all-time game against an SEC opponent.
