Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - A big time opportunity will come to the Jamestown men's basketball team this upcoming fall.

Head coach Justin Wick tells me that the Jimmies will play an exhibition game November 6th at New Mexico in the Pit. Wick is friends with current Loboes head coach Craig Neal and the two have been talking about a potential game for a couple months and now it's finally come together.

Justin Wick, Jimmies Head Coach: β€œIt's obviously a great arena. They have hosted a Final Four there with Jimmy V I believe. There will be 15,000 people there. They will probably be ranked in the top 20. I was looking at their roster the other day with some of the coaches on my staff and we think there is probably three or four NBA guys on their roster, so it will be quite the challenge obviously, but we got a chance to tell our guys here about a week ago when it was about 99% finalized. They are all obviously really excited, just to go out there and play in that environment and to play against those kinds of players.”
