The NJIT men's basketball team will be featured on NBC Channel 4 New York Wednesday, January 9, at 6 p.m. on the sports segment of the news.

Bruce Beck — lead sports anchor for NBC 4 NY — visited the campus of NJIT Wednesday afternoon to cover the historic start of the Highlanders. Beck interviewed third-year men's basketball head coach Brian Kennedy, senior Abdul Lewis and sophomores Zach Cooks and San Antonio Brinson.

The Highlanders (13-3) are off to the best start in their Division-I history (13 seasons) and since the program opened 13-1 in 1994-95 – a season in which it went 28-2 and advanced to the NCAA Division-III Elite Eight.
