Editor's note â€” This is the second in a two-part series previewing the Carl Albert State College basketball teams.
The Carl Albert State College Vikings will open their 2012-13 basketball season at 8 p.m. Thursday against North Arkansas for homecoming at Mick Thompson Fieldhouse.
The Vikings will face a pretty solid opponent in North Arkansas.
"Last season, North Arkansas was 21-9 overall,â€ť said Mike St. John, Carl Albert men's coach. â€śThey have their second- and third-leading scorers returning. Offensively, they are pretty patient, while defensively they will play man-to-man defense.â€ť
