ECBL Broadcast, May 7: High Point Hawks at Winston-Salem Certified

East Coast Basketball League logo

On Saturday, May 7, NetCast Sports Network will broadcast the ECBL Game of the Week, featuring the High Point Hawks as they travel to face Winston-Salem Certified. If you are not familiar with the region, High Point and Winston-Salem are neighboring cities so this pretty much automatically qualifies as a rivalry game.

High Point comes into the game with a 3-4 record on the season and is coming off a loss to the Petersburg Revolution (which can be watched on replay here). Winston-Salem’s record on the year is 2-5 and they want to get on the winning track with this upcoming home game.

Game time is expected to tip at 5 pm EST – if there are issues the broadcast will be slightly delayed. For updates, be sure to follow @NetCastSports on Twitter.
