"I'm excited Newberry and North Greenville can continue our series against each other," Finley said. "Coach Knight and I look forward to getting to know coach Jeff Farrington over the next few years.

"It's great to have non-conference NCAA Division II in-region competition to enhance the student-athlete experience at Newberry College. I'm especially pleased we will have three in-state opponents visit our campus in 2015," Finley added.

The Wolves and Crusaders have played 11 times, with Newberry holding a 9-2 all-time lead in the series. With the addition of the two games announced today, the two schools are scheduled to meet for six consecutive years, the longest such run in the series.
