Eagles will arrive home around 6 p.m.

The Winthrop men's basketball team will arrive at the Winthrop Coliseum between 6 and 6:30 p.m. today.

The team was originally scheduled to depart from Spokane, Wash. at midnight Eastern time, arriving in Charlotte at 5 a.m., and returning to the Winthrop Coliseum at 6 a.m., but the flight was postponed until this morning.

Fans are welcome to greet the team at the back of the coliseum.

The Eagles played two NCAA Tournament games in Spokane, beating Notre Dame Friday and losing to Oregon Sunday. The 74-64 win was historic for the Eagles, marking the first-ever Big Dance win after six earlier tries.
