Does Black Friday shopping sound appealing? No? Good, because we’ll happily pass on an overcrowded store for an evening of basketball too. Here’s your guide to college football and basketball, plus NBA basketball for Thanksgiving weekend.
1) Charlotte 49ers vs. Florida Atlantic Nov. 25 at 2 p.m.
The 49ers are your only option for football in the Queen City this weekend.
The 1-10 49ers face the 8-3 Owls, who are undefeated in Conference USA, in the final regular season home game. It marks the finale to a forgettable season for Charlotte.
1) Johnson C. Smith Golden Bulls (Division II)
The 3-2 Golden Bulls host the Belmont Abbey Crusaders (2-2) on Nov. 24 at 6 p.m. in the first game of a back-to-back weekend. JCSU hosts the West Georgia Wolves (3-0) at 4 p.m. on Nov. 25.
2) Charlotte 49ers (Division I)
The High Point Panthers head to Charlotte on Nov. 24 at 7 p.m. Both sides are 1-2.
3) Charlotte Hornets
After snapping a six-game losing streak with a 102-87 win Saturday against the Los Angeles Clippers, the 5-9 Hornets host San Antonio (10-6), the team that started their skid, on Nov. 25 at 7 p.m.
Notable nods: guards Nic Batum and Michael Carter-Williams are working their way back into the system. Both missed the first month of the season with injuries (Batum: elbow; Carter-Williams: knees).
