MACU to Host Carolina Basketball Academy

August 16, 2018

ELIZABETH CITY, NC -- Mid-Atlantic Christian University has entered an agreement with the Carolina Basketball Academy (CBA) for the 2018-2019 academic year.

“This agreement is intended to further MACU’s reach of Christian example and practice by providing Christian witness, lifestyle, and educational opportunity to a cooperating organization,” stated MACU President John Maurice.

CBA is a preparatory basketball academy with a post-high school team and a high school team. CBA student-athletes have gone on to play at schools like Arizona State and Oregon. Two former student-athletes recently completed their master’s degrees. The director of CBA, Coach Greg Primus, has served on multiple college athletic staffs and has been an NBA scout. Primus commented, “The arrangement also allows the post-graduate players to take a limited number of college courses to help them get started on the right path academically.”

MACU will provide housing and facilities to CBA and its players and coaches. MACU believes this will help further the mission of the school in turning ordinary people into extraordinary Christian leaders. CBA will not be an official part of MACU Mustang athletics, but they will be living in the dorms and using MACU’s gym and fitness facilities.  

MACU Athletics Director Andy Meneely stated, “We look forward to working with CBA. We believe this can become a long-term mutually beneficial relationship. We hope having CBA here will help generate more excitement on campus and in the community. And it is chance for us to positively affect the lives of 25 more students.”
