Norse Return: Champions Welcomed Back to NKU Campus

A day after making history and becoming the darling of national sports TV and radio, the Northern Kentucky Norse returned to a celebration on campus in Highland Heights.

NKU won the Horizon League basketball tournament, earning the team its first appearance in the NCAA Tournament, in its first year eligible. The team bus returned from Detroit on Wednesday afternoon to a large crowd of supporters - even though NKU students are currently on spring break and off campus.

President Geoff Mearns and Head Coach John Brannen shared remarks in Griffin Hall's digitorium where a large photo of the team celebrating its win was displayed. Then, players talked to the media.

The River City News broadcast the event live and you can watch the replay below.
